Synthesis Map Expo 2022 (#2), Strategic Foresight and Innovation program
July 11 (the second Monday of the month) was the 102nd meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration was at https://synthesis-maps-2022-july.eventbrite.ca
Every year Systems Thinking Ontario hosts a series of summer evening events for presentations of synthesis maps (complex systems maps) created in systemic design courses in OCAD University graduate programs.
Synthesis maps are rich visualizations that illustrate the real-world complexity of systemic challenges, and typically used to not only “map system problems” but to propose design recommendations for systems change and policies (from health to public policy, from service experiences to social change) from evidence gathered in stakeholder research. Policymakers and organizational stakeholders use synthesis maps for strategic advising, long-term planning, and considering interventions for social and systemic challenges (wicked problems).
The second session of the mapping expo includes:
Expo #1 (June) presentations included the following, now on video:
These are all available on Youtube and shareable. Speakers and community members are encouraged to invite colleagues from communities possibly interested in the map topics.
The link for a Zoom conference will be sent upon preregistration.
