Upcoming Webinar for J-WEL Members: Compassionate Systems with Peter Senge and Mette Böll

Peter Senge

We are pleased to announce a webinar offering for J-WEL members, to be held from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Eastern US time on Wednesday, May 23, 2018. The webinar is entitled “Compassionate Systems” and will be run by MIT Senior Lecturer Peter Senge and J-WEL Visiting Research Scientist Dr. Mette Miriam Rakel Böll.  


Webinar Description

An essential question for the future of education is how to help students understand and respond mindfully and compassionately to the interconnected systemic challenges in our world. These challenges are both global - like climate change, human migration and poverty - and very local, like substance abuse, stress, cliques, and bullying in school. Rather than feeling overwhelmed by the complexity, we believe that the innovations in systems thinking education, social and emotional learning, and mindfulness that have occurred over the past two decades can build a cognitive and affective foundation of skills essential for students in today’s world. This webinar will provide an introduction to the “compassionate systems” project unfolding with educators around the world as a framework for both classroom and school leadership. This project will also be the focus of a 2.5-day workshop, entitled "Introduction to Compassionate Systems Framework in Schools," available at a discount to J-WEL members, June 20-22, 2018. 

J-WEL members were sent information on how to register for this webinar in an email announcement on May 15, 2018. If you did not receive any communication from us and believe this is an error, please email us at jwel AT mit dot edu and we will work to resolve the issue.
