Structured Deliberations to Promote Systems Literacy

This initiative builds on the cultivation of Systems Literacy movements to address the integration of Systems and Systems Models as Cross-Cutting Concepts in Educational Systems, in Policy Making at various levels, as the basis for collaborative action at the Community level, in K-12 curricula, and as assistance to individuals in facing problems and dilemma in a systemic fashion. It is anterior to Systemic Design.

Overall Objectives

Prospective inquiries to be conducted include:

  • engage a large network of representative stakeholders as participants in "deliberation-at-scale'for an overall plan to promote Systems Literacy at large.
  • engage members of systems societies in rationalization, unification, and integration of various systems perspectives.
  • engage members of different schools of thought regarding systems science and practice in articulating a pluralist framework for systems literacy.
  • engage individuals in the K-12 system in addressing problems and dilemma they face from a systemic perspective.
  • promote Systems Literacy in domain-specific contexts
