SUMMER SCHOOL ON SYSTEM DYNAMICS FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The bilingual (English/French) Summer School on System Dynamics for Sustainability is targeted at NGO practitioners, policymakers, graduate and postgraduate students; and equips them to apply dynamic modeling tools to issues encountered in their areas of work. The System Dynamics Online Course is a prerequisite for participation in the summer school. Deadline for applications is April 15th.
SUMMER SCHOOL ON COMPLEXITY SCIENCE FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The Summer School on Complexity Science for Sustainability will bring together a group of advanced graduate students and faculty, and professionals working in the public and private sectors, to apply tools from complexity science to the participants' own sustainability projects. Expert lecturers will present on applying and developing complexity science tools for sustainability in their own work. Deadline for applications is April 25th.
The two summer schools will take place simultaneously from August 1 - 14, 2021 in Laschamps, a small village in the Auvergne Volcano Area, close to Clermont Ferrand, France.
