This subject introduces complexity and systems thinking with a focus on real-world sustainability issues. Students probe the nature and characteristics of complex systems and design interventions that move these systems towards sustainable futures. They explore a variety of mapping, modelling and intervention strategies and apply them to a current and complex sustainability challenge. Through this process, students creatively and rigorously test key qualities they have identified in a complex system and put forward proposals that initiate change for sustainable futures.
