This subject introduces students to ways of thinking differently about ‘wicked’ problems we face in a networked world. Students draw on a range of approaches from across disciplines and professional domains to explore complex social and environmental challenges. Striving towards sustainable futures, these new ways of thinking enable students to move away from conventional problem-solving approaches to discover new avenues for action. By working in multidisciplinary teams on complex industry or community challenges, students develop their relational and analytic skills required for complex problem-solving today and in the future. Students articulate their own questions and communicate their proposals for addressing current or emerging global challenges to a range of diverse audiences.
