March 8 (the second Monday of the month) is the 88th meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration is on Eventbrite at https://systems-literacy.eventbrite.ca.
Coexploring Systems Literacy
Literacy has been proposed as an understanding of a small number of pervasive principles appropriate to making informed personal and societal decisions.
- Systems literacy includes an understanding of systems that influence you, and your influence on systems.
Peter Tuddenham has been leading an initiative on Systems Literacy across a variety of systems organizations, particularly with the International Society for the Systems Sciences, where he was president (2018-2019).
- Ongoing development builds on previous work facilitated and/or contributed by the College of Exploration, combined with many systems educations programs around the world.
In addition to this conversation, Systems Thinking Ontario members are invited to join the CoExplorer Cafe and Pub that runs on the first Fridays of the month, 3pm to 6pm ET.
- The virtual meeting will happen on Friday, March 5, before the next Systems Thinking Ontario meeting.
This March session of Systems Thinking Ontario will be moderated by Zaid Khan.
