Attend the upcoming conference, an international event featuring System Dynamics work
on the causes and effects of global warming and climate change
that affect global resources and assets
Check out how System Dynamics and systems thinking help solve environmental issues and propel the sustainability agenda.
“I think System Dynamics is the ABC
of understanding the world”
“There is a property of systems that can be our greatest aid in our goal of creating change. Unfortunately, it can also be the biggest threat in our goal to protecting a stable climate. It’s called reinforcing feedback“
Attend the conference to learn about state-of-the-art developments on sustainability issues and submit your work for greater visibility! The Conference offers 13 threads, 3 of which are closely related to sustainability issues.

Focus Areas: Agriculture and Food; Air, Water, and Land Use; Climate Change; Ecology and Biodiversity; Energy and Fuels; Environmental Regulation; Pollution and Waste Management
Covers issues including governance, social welfare, equity, justice, political science, urban dynamics, and infrastructure.
Focus Areas: COVID-19; Equity and Justice; Governance; Infrastructure; Political Science; Social Welfare; Urban Dynamics
Transport and Mobility
Covers all aspects of transportation systems and mobility, including transport and urban planning policies; new services, technologies or business models; decarbonization and sustainable mobility; transport and health; and freight and logistics.
Focus Areas: Accessibility and Equity; Decarbonization and Sustainability; Freight and Logistics; Infrastructure Planning and Policy Design; New Technologies and Services; Non-Car and Multi-Modal Transport; Public Health and Traffic Safety
Get involved and develop your skills in System Dynamics and systems thinking by reading sustainability-related books and playing hands-on sustainability-related board games.
These books and products are all related to sustainability and/or the environment. Many of them use a systems thinking lens, while others incorporate System Dynamics and simulation modeling.
