Transforming Systems

An immersion in general and living systems theory in the context of earth as a living system. Systems theory offers an effective paradigm for engaging in change processes at different scales in both biological and social domains. Particular attention is given to how systems of all scales---personal, societal and ecological---transform, leading to an exploration of environmental, social, and cultural change processes. Theory is anchored in lived experience through personal and group work, applied research, and problem-solving.
