Thinking in Systems – Ashley Muse, CMC Adjunct Faculty in Sustainability Studies

The way we think has a profound impact on the way we shape the world around us. Any aim of ‘sustainability’ must seek to understand what it means to participate in complex living systems – where mental models of linear cause and effect rarely apply. Systems thinking is an alternative interdisciplinary approach to problem solving that emphasizes patterns of interconnection as a way of finding more powerful leverage for individual and collective action. Please join Ashley Muse, architect and Systems Thinking instructor to find out what systems thinking is all about.

An Ode to Dr. Seuss – Adrian Fielder, CMC Instructional Chair and Carbondale Lappala Center Director

Theodore Geisel is best known, under his pseudonym Dr. Seuss, for changing the face of children’s literature, by making it more accessible, vibrant and fun.  But he was also a politically-engaged and outspoken philosopher who changed the way that millions of people think about some of the most pressing issues of our times, from human rights and world peace to environmental stewardship and inner peace.  Come join Adrian Fielder, site director of the Lappala Center and a former reading specialist, for an educational yet poetic ode to the genius of Dr. Seuss.
