Deep Dive: Introduction
How do we create space — emotionally and intellectually — to listen to other points of view and experiences? How do we share our own ideas without fear or judgment? And how can these questions help us to view problems systemically, in all their complexity? This Deep Dive Introduction offers a selection of our resources and activities to help you get started and is designed to guide your engagement with any Doha Debates production, be it a live debate, a podcast or other media as you explore complex global issues. Each lesson also includes links to other related Deep Dive learning materials from our Better Conversations and Systems Thinking modules.
Climate Change: Can we rise to the challenge?
Human activities are changing the climate in unprecedented and, in some cases, irreversible ways. But what are the best solutions to this enormous challenge? Is focusing on renewable resources practical? And how do we balance our global fight against climate change with the myriad other problems plaguing our planet?
Better Conversations provides an in-depth introduction to skills necessary to conduct difficult conversations about potentially sensitive local and global challenges. With these skills under your belt, you can productively engage with the Doha Debates materials. Try our four step process: Prepare + Engage + Reflect + Act to practice and integrate each skill.
