About the Course

The convergence of different crises pressuring the world today is probably one of the most complex human-made phenomena we can observe. From biodiversity loss to the threat to democracy, all of these crises are deeply intertwined. Therefore, tools from the complexity and systems-thinking toolsets become very relevant for anyone seeking to have a slight grasp of what is going on and what is probably going to happen. This project is about using two of these tools to have a minimal understanding of how all of these crises are interconnected and to simulate possible future scenarios. The aforementioned tools are Loopy and Mental Modeler, which combine provide a insightful framework for the study of the current Human Predicament and other highly complex situations. Moreover, in this project you will have the opportunity to participate in an experiment that tries to touch on the collective intelligence permeating us all in order to have a better understanding of our current situation - and maybe find more suitable paths. Are you ready? Note: This project works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

This was an excellent introduction to two different online systems modeling applications. I will spend a lot more time exploring these tools for my work on modeling different systems beyond the climate systems used as an example. I like that he highlighted the possibilities of crowd-sourcing system model development, something I also hope to use going forward.

I had no idea about this topic and the project. Yet, I faced no difficulty to learn it from scratch. My gratitude to the instructor. His instruction was very interactive.
