Science, Complexity and Sustainability in the University of the Future

Science, Complexity and Sustainability in the University of the Future
This activity begins with a series of small group seminars that focus on the relationship of complex adaptive system, complexity science and sustainable development,. It builds student knowledge of how to promote a sustainable future; and to apply that knowledge to conceptualize a new type of university that would prepare people who could lead society to a sustainable future. In the activity, readings inform small group seminar discussions that identify sustainable development issues.. Knowledge about these issues is enhanced through lecture, videos, and increasingly through TED Talks directed to each issue. The knowledge gained enriches subsequent small group seminars and the knowledge that students them apply in conceptualizing their University of the Future.
