Navigating Complexity: Full Day Workshop

navigating complexity poster

Sunday 27 November 2016,  Rotterdam
10:00 am – 17:00 pm

Just because life is complex doesn’t mean things have to feel complicated. In a scientific sense, a complex system is any system where there are multiple interacting elements that all affect each other and all interact simultaneously. Think of an economy, a traffic network, a family, an ecosystem or even the dynamics at a party. In this full-day session we will explore the science of complexity and then go on to try out different ways of playfully making sense of complex situations. You will go home with a better understanding of complex dynamics and a toolbox of tips and tricks for accessing your intuitive ways of knowing in a complex situation.
