CAS#2 Beyond Systems Thinking. Applications: 1 March-31 March 2024, Duration: May-September 2024.
The new MAS in Regenerative Systems (DRRS) is a systemic programme for designerly enacting complex systems in a highly innovative didactic setting. Participants from any background become leaders in transformation towards regeneration. They are being updated on the latest science on sustainability and resilience; they challenge dominant worldviews and deep-dive into a holistic understanding of regeneration; they acquire critical systems thinking and learn tools to govern emergence across various scales of living systems, weaving bioregional economies. The MAS teaches quantitative methods such as GIS mapping, social network and life cycle analysis, and understands their relational value with qualitative methods and tacit knowledge; we learn research by design and designerly practice; we practice deep philosophical discourse; critically employ artificial intelligence; we embody real-world illustrations, inner personal development, and enact with living systems labs through field design trips to Italy, Norway, and Mallorca. The MAS contains three CAS and one MAS thesis module. CAS#2 Beyond Systems Thinking takes place in spring term 2024. The DRRS MOOC series is a precondition to taking the CAS; the actual CAS teaching is a hybrid with virtual live conversations and a physical field trip.
