Changing Our Perspective: New Ways of Thinking About the Delta - Video Links to Conference Presentations
On October 18th, 2011, the Delta Conservancy and the Water Education Foundation co-hosted their first annual conference. Formally titled "Changing Our Perspective: New Ways of Thinking About the Delta" the daylong conference offered unique ways to approach the complex issues in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
Well known strategists Jeff Conklin and Ian Mitroff discussed how the Delta is a "Wicked Problem" and how people often solve the wrong problem very precisely. Dialogue between the two explores different strategies and approaches that can be used not to "fix" the problems in the Delta, but to "manage" the conditions in the Delta to maintain both its local and statewide resources.
