Statement from System Dynamics Society

Statement from System Dynamics Society

Our hearts go out to those who are suffering because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. There are many Ukrainian practitioners of System Dynamics, and we hope they will be able to continue work in the field. To help with this, the System Dynamics Society is waiving conference fees for all those from Ukraine who are able to attend this year’s conference either in person, or virtually. We are also waiving Society membership fees. We have asked the Program Chairs for this year’s conference and the System Dynamics Review Editor to highlight the work of Ukrainians. For those who seek financial support for research projects and other activities in System Dynamics we are prioritizing applications by Ukrainians to the Strengthening the Field Fund.

The Society will also cease association with all organizations and activities supporting or facilitating Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ensure there are no connections on our website or other publications.

The scale of loss in this conflict is enormous, and much of it is irreversible. While the System Dynamics Society can only play a very small part in helping, we want our colleagues from Ukraine to know that we stand with them.

Actions

  1. Waive 2022 conference fees for anyone from Ukraine (virtual or in-person).

  2. Waive Society membership fees for anyone from Ukraine through the end of 2023.

  3. Encourage Ukrainian Society members to work with the STFF to create appropriate proposals.

  4. Encourage journal editor and conference Program Chairs to highlight contributions by Ukrainians.

  5. Stop association with all organizations and activities supporting or facilitating Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and ensure there are no connections on our website or other publications.

The statement and accompanying actions were approved by the Policy Council of the System Dynamics Society on April 6th, 2022.

Donella (Dana) Meadows was an inspiring leader, scholar, writer, teacher, a Pew Scholar in Conservation and Environment, and a MacArthur Fellow, and was one of the most influential environmental thinkers of the twentieth century. After receiving a Ph.D. in biophysics from Harvard, she joined a team at MIT applying the relatively new tools of System Dynamics to global problems. While Donella Meadows researched and wrote about global problems, she herself also practiced local solutions, a living personification of Rene Dubos’ famous expression, “Think Globally, Act Locally.”

Donella’s ideas, insights, teachings, environmental leadership, and belief in the capacity of humans to create a sustainable world continue to inspire and motivate us today. 

Visit the Donella Meadows Project by the Academy for Systems Change to learn more about Dana’s life and work.

DONELLA MEADOW’S BOOKS

Dana wrote and co-authored several books, including the following: 

Twenty years after their influential book Limits to Growth was published to worldwide acclaim, the authors revise several scenarios of growth, concluding that the global industrial system has already overshot some of the Earth’s vital ecological limits.

Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update is a warning that overshoot cannot be sustained without collapse. But there is reason to believe that humanity can still reverse some of its damage to Earth if it takes appropriate measures to reduce inefficiency and waste.

The Electronic Oracle investigates the practice and impact of systems analysis and computer modeling, particularly as applied to social policy. Case studies of nine models address issues of economic development, resources, and the environment.

This book brings systems thinking out of the realm of computers and equations and into the tangible world, showing how to develop the systems-thinking skills that thought leaders across the globe consider critical for 21st-century life.
