Come participate in an exploratory, *beginner friendly* talk about complexity science! We will begin with a discussion of foundational concepts, and then learn about how this accessible and extremely useful field can help us investigate, analyze and propose solutions to address systemic problems.
The tools of complexity science lend themselves to a collaborative, holistic and adaptive problem-solving approach, and they also provide a framework for efficient and thorough investigations of complex problems.
Come enhance your understanding of the complex nature of difficult problems, and see how you can uncover points of leverage to appropriately address their multiple causes.
