Leadership for sustainable change, 18.1.-6.3.2022, 5 ECTS

SystemsChange.now, 17.1.-27.3.2022, 5 ECTS
Climate change calls for urgent attention to the specific links between humans and our natural environment. Understanding these connections and their implications is crucial for responding to climate change as a global challenge. When we understand climate change as a systemic phenomenon, i.e. as the product of a certain system of connections between things, we unlock a powerful set of tools for making sense of it – systems thinking.
