The nature of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires an interdisciplinary mind-set. In line with this UKI PRME members identified systems thinking as a key area for development.
This day has been put together to demonstrate the ways that a systems approach aid an understanding of complex sustainability issues and to give you opportunities to explore how to apply them in your own work.
- Speakers will make links between global issues of the SDGs and the need to re-think economy.
- The day will provide an overview of systems approaches to dealing with complexity.
- Identifying complex issues in your work and ways to approach them.
- Issues for business in engaging with systems thinking - the Prepare for Change model.
- Option to take away a Certificate from the Institute in Introduction to Systems Thinking

About the Schumacher Institute
"The Schumacher Institute is a think tank. We believe that our planet faces complex social, economic and environmental crises that are hard to solve, however, we are optimistic that solutions can be found. We apply systems thinking to explore and test sustainable options, which acknowledge the complexity of our world. We see social justice as integral to sustainability and look for answers that are fair to all, within the limits the Earth can sustain."
