94665 Complexity and Sustainability

Requisite(s): 81539 Impossibilities to Possibilities


In this subject participants probe the nature and range of complex systems with a focus on real-world sustainability challenges. In the process they explore ways to understand these systems and design interventions that move towards sustainable futures using, for example, visual and temporal mapping techniques, modelling, adaptive management and a range of sustainable design frameworks. Through undertaking a community project, participants are challenged to creatively and rigorously test key qualities they have identified in a complex system and put forward proposals that initiate change for sustainable development.
