Loughborough University research briefs that gather a set of papers for a panel-style session. An instigator starts the conversation after the authors deliver a short presentation to set the context.

Responsible innovation for a world that cares

In a world confronting escalating environmental crises, the imperative of climate action has never been more pressing. The authors consider responsible design and its symbiotic relationship with systems thinking in the pursuit of global environmental well-being. At its core, this theme envisions a world that cares—a society united by the understanding that collective care is paramount for a sustainable future. The panel assesses the role of education, policy innovation, technology information and communication and participation in cultivating this caring ethos. By amalgamating insights from diverse disciplines and impactful case studies from digital technologies, education and health, this panel spotlights the barriers and opportunities to transcend into meaningful systemic change.

Questions

What are the main tensions between climate action and your main discipline or domain?

Within the context of a world that cares for the environment, how can policymakers and industry leaders adopt systems thinking strategies to address interconnected challenges such as climate change, resource depletion, and social equity?

How can educational strategies encourage individuals and communities to embrace a global culture that prioritises regeneration and sustainability?

How feasible is the transition to a circular economy in sectors that often do not prioritise these outcomes (i.e., healthcare), and what indicators of environmental and financial impacts could support this transition?
