Description
Systems Thinking and the SDGs
A PRME workshop on Systems Thinking - in partnership with the Schumacher Institute.
Approaches/tools and application in the context of the SDGs
Open to staff at PRME and non PRME member institutions

The nature of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires an interdisciplinary mind-set. In line with this UK and Ireland PRME members have identified systems thinking as a key area for faculty development.

This day has been put together to demonstrate the ways that a systems approach aids an understanding of complex sustainability issues and to give you opportunities to explore how to apply this approach in your own work.
