Anti-requisite(s): 94657 Futures Thinking: Making Futures AND 94665 Complexity and Sustainability
This subject introduces complexity concepts and systems thinking. Students probe the nature and characteristics of a range of complex dynamic systems. In the process they explore ways to understand these systems using multiple techniques for visualising and analysing complex systems. Through exploring different scenarios and intervention strategies, the subject challenges students to creatively and rigorously test key qualities they have identified in various complex dynamic systems. Drawing on these insights, students articulate their own questions and proposals for addressing current or emerging global challenges and shifting society towards a sustainable future.
