System Dynamics in Climate Change Mitigation
The UK Chapter of the System Dynamics Society held a network meeting on the theme of system dynamics in climate change mitigation. The meeting was held on December 5th, from 1pm to 5pm, at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change.
The meeting began with four speakers: Prof Frank Boons talked on the relationship of circular economy and climate change, Dr John Broderick about his experiences in running the C-ROADS climate model, Dr Martin Reynolds from the OU about critical systems thinking and sustainability, and Dr Danial Schien presented work on modelling of the carbon footprint of digital media.
There was a short plenary in which examples of mitigation (both successful and otherwise) that are of interest to participants were identified. Groups then explored their chosen example through causal loop diagramming and other SD related methods.
