Do you want to make the systems you work and live in more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable? Systems Thinking is an integral part of understanding sustainability. Systems Thinking will enable you to see “the big picture” (the forest and the trees). Systems Thinking synthesizes information from many different perspectives and disciplines. You will understand the cross-impacts and unanticipated consequences of your decisions. You will develop high-leverage solutions for transitioning to tomorrow’s most challenging problems in your personal and academic lives, such as planning sustainably, allocating scarce resources, and analyzing trade-offs. This is a hands-on and highly participatory course where you will be part of a team that applies Systems Thinking towards solving a relevant sustainability issue for a community or campus organization. It is also a non-technical course with no computer use.
