Intro to system science and permaculture (online)

Thinking Systematically: Achieving Sustainable Systems

A simple introduction to systems science and its links to permaculture:
  • Systems science provides a means of analyzing and understanding complex processes based on a few basic principles
  • Complex systems behave in complex ways and may change over time
  • When problems emerge there is an underlying positive feedback loop that may not be evident
  • Such problems cannot be solved using linear causality thinking
  • True sustainability involves whole systems thinking and design
  • Permaculture is the application of systems thinking to the design of living arrangements
