EnLIGHTeNING Lunch with Susan Spierre Clark

Climate Change, Games, and Resilience: A Sampling of Research by an Interdisciplinary Scholar

This seminar will begin with a brief discussing of Dr. Clark’s dissertation work, which investigated the relationship between carbon emissions and human development among many countries as well as its implications for climate change policy and sustainable development. She will also describe her work in the area of sustainability education, where she has co-created a series of learning games that aim to experientially teach science and engineering students about ethics related to sustainability challenges, such as the Tragedy of the Commons and environmental externalities. If time allows, Dr. Clark will end with a general overview of her current work on socio-technical resilience.
