Mapping your impact - running over 2 days 4.00pm - 7.30pm

Systems thinking and causal loop diagrams

An introductory course running over two evenings, 16th & 17th May

Systems are all around us - we act and interact within them. In order to see your, or your organization’s, role in bringing about change, you need to get a grasp of the systems. In this course, we focus on the mapping tool causal loop diagrams. Causal loop diagrams, or CLDs, are powerful tools in getting a hold of the systems around us and to find the leverage points to change them to the better. Inspired by the teachings of Donella Meadows, the course offers you an introduction to causal loop mapping and systems thinking

Our task – and the task of all education – is to understand the present world, the world in which we live and make our choices.
