With the recently released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report still sending shockwaves across the world, a group of Brock University researchers says a radical shift in the way humans view their place on Earth is critical to securing a more sustainable future.

To engage with the public in transformative thinking and action on climate and environmental issues, members of the Brock-led “Beyond Sustainability: Radical Transformation Through System Thinking” research team have turned to the social networking app Clubhouse.
