Description
  • <p>This course will allow you to extend your visual modelling skills through the use of the sign graph diagramming technique. You will explore the dynamic relationship between social, economic and ecological factors whose interdependencies will determine the complex dynamics of the future as it unfolds. Your final task will be to identify points of intervention within this complex system in order to "nudge" the situation towards a more favourable outcome.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 2 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/environment-and-development?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Environment &amp; Development</a></span></p>
  • There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this unit is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/the-environment/environmental-studies/understanding-the-environment-flows-and-feedback/content-section-0" /> First published on Wed, 27 Jul 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/the-environment/environmental-studies/understanding-the-environment-flows-and-feedback/content-section-0">Understanding the environment: Flows and feedback</a>.
