Tom O'Toole, Executive Director of the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA), the host and co-sponsor of the event, says, "We hope this event will impress upon faculty, students, and community members the importance of systems thinking in the field of public affairs; not only the interdisciplinary applications of systems thinking in the field, but how lack of systems thinking (in both academia and practice) has contributed to some of the most serious political, economic, and social problems our world is facing."
Along with CIPA, Systems Thinking v2.0 is co-sponsored by other leaders in the public, private, and University sectors such as Cornell's Center for Engaged Learning and Research, Ithaca College's School of Health Sciences and Human Performance, the Roy H. Park School of Communication, Sustainable Tompkins, and the Ithaca City School District, ThinkWater, USDA/NIFA, and ThinkSTEM.
