Are you a social innovator, designer, activist, public official or another world changer? Do you work on climate issues, in healthcare or other big and difficult challenges that seem messy? Are you looking for concrete tools that might help you holistically approach the problems you are facing? Or are you simply curious what systems thinking is, and what it could offer?
We warmly invite you to join this hands-on workshop for anyone with limited or no systems thinking experience to gain a basic understanding of what systems thinking is and why it is important. During the workshop, you will learn and apply a key systems thinking method — Causal Loop Diagramming (CLD). Causal loop diagrams help us map out the cause and effect relationships that we assume give rise to a certain problem/pattern of behaviour, and therefore a powerful tool to unearth our assumptions, clarify our understanding, and most importantly engage others in the process of sensemaking.
Who is it for:
People who are interested or curious but have little to no experience in systems thinking and the Causal Loop Diagramming method. Anyone facing messy situations in their everyday work and life and looking for new ways to approach them.
This is a two part hands on training, taking place online using tools such as Zoom and Miro. The language of the workshop is English. The participation in both workshops is encouraged, and participation in Part 1 is a requirement for Part 2 of the workshop.
Part 1: October 27, 5PM-8PM (EEST)
Part 2: November 10, 5PM-8PM (EEST)
The training is donations based, which means that we ask you to contribute an amount that you feel that you can afford, or what you think the course is worth. This enables us to offer the course to a wider range of participants than if it were to be offered at a fixed price. You are invited to donate via MobilePay or PayPal.
