MIT System Dynamics Seminar | Deep Uncertainty, Collective Action, and Coordination in the Face of Climate Change

May 10 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

You are invited to attend the System Dynamics Seminar being held on Friday, May 10th from 12:30-2:00pm EST in the Jay W. Forrester conference room, E62-450, or via Zoom: (Password: SDSP24). Our virtual guest speaker will be Elke U. Weber (Princeton University) presenting Deep Uncertainty, Collective Action, and Coordination in the Face of Climate Change: How Attention and Choice Processes Influence Choice Outcomes (see abstract and biography link below; announcement attached). Lunch will be provided to those attending in person and a reminder email will be sent out closer to the date.

Climate-change related decisions differ from simpler choices. They (i) involve an intergenerational public good, (ii) often require collective action and coordination, and (iii) typically have elements of deep uncertainty. Organized around these three choice characteristics, I will synthesize three recently published studies that examine how the nature of the physical and/or social environment influences the attentional processes and decision-modes by which such decisions are being made. Understanding the effects of decision context on choice can provide entry points for the design of choice architectures that enable more foresightful decisions, i.e., choices that will not be regretted in the long run.
