Any approach that tries to understand these systems in isolation would often miss out on the interactions happening between them and how they influence each other. Thus, there is a need to have a systems approach towards understanding the interrelationships between these systems and to be able to identify leverage points which can bring about desired changes. Systems thinking and modeling is rooted in feedback theory where the causes and effects are understood in feedback loops, and the non-linear behaviour over time of systems, understood through the feedback structures present in the system. In order to derive deeper insight into the system’s dynamics, systems thinking offers tools which can be used to map the structure of the system and identify dominating loops and area of leverage for interventions. The overall goal of the workshop will be to introduce the tools of systems thinking and system dynamics modelling to the participants. To achieve this, the workshop’s objectives will be: 1. To introduce participants to tools of systems thinking and system dynamics. 2. To sensitize participants about the relevance of systems thinking and system dynamics in sustainability research. 3. To showcase applications of systems thinking and system dynamics in the sustainability research field.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″ _builder_version=”3.12.2″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ admin_label=”Subscribe” _builder_version=”3.12.2″ background_color=”rgba(0,0,0,0.37)” use_background_color_gradient=”on” background_color_gradient_start=”#D883F8″ background_color_gradient_end=”#352DBE” background_color_gradient_direction=”96deg” background_color_gradient_start_position=”29%” background_image=”http://103.120.178.226/~sccs/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/5-1.jpg” background_blend=”overlay” custom_margin=”|||” custom_padding=”0||0||true|false” saved_tabs=”all” global_module=”309″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.48″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat”][et_pb_column type=”1_4″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.12.2″]
