Everyone is welcome to attend this live Zoom event with Elizabeth Sawin.

Elizabeth Sawin is Co-Founder and Co-Director of Climate Interactive and an expert on solutions that address climate change while also improving health, well-being, equity, and economic vitality, and she is the originator of the term "multisolving" to describe such win-win-win solutions. Beth writes and speaks about multisolving, climate change, and leadership based on systems thinking to local, national, and international audiences. A biologist with a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Beth trained in system dynamics and sustainability with Donella Meadows and worked at Sustainability Institute, the research institute founded by Meadows, for 13 years.

Pandemic as Portal is a nine-week series featuring visionary thinkers who are imagining the world anew as it reconfigures in the midst of the pandemic. Each speaker will explore their highest vision of environmental and social justice, think about the crucial steps we can take as individuals and communities to bring that vision to life, and share stories of how this new paradigm is already taking shape.

SCHEDULE
The series will be broadcast live on Zoom Tuesdays at 6 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. EST from January 12 to March 9. Other speakers include Kim Stanley Robinson, Erin Moore, J. Drew Lanham, Mazin Jamal, KJ Song, Michael Paul Nelson, Bathsheba Demuth, Nia E. Martin-Robinson, and Vanessa Raditz.
