Action research to improve water quality in Canada’s Rideau Canal: how do local groups reshape environmental governance?
ABSTRACT The historic Rideau Canal, spanning 200 km between the Canadian cities of Ottawa and Kingston, is a world heritage site and recreational waterway. The waterway presents a governanceExpand
Applying Roadmapping and Conceptual Modeling to the Energy Transition: A Local Case Study
It is found that the combination of conceptual modeling and roadmapping facilitates discussions between heterogeneous stakeholders on complex transition problems, such as the energy transition, at a local scale. Expand
Canaries in Technology Mines: Warning Signs of Transformative Progress in AI
1 In this paper we introduce a methodology for identifying early warning signs of transformative progress in AI, to aid anticipatory governance and research prioritisation. We propose using expertExpand
Cool Communities—Urban Density, Trees, and Health
A systems thinking approach called Collaborative Conceptual Modelling was used to study the interaction between urban infill, tree canopy, and human health in Perth, Australia, and indicated that under current planning policies and development practices, the behaviour is dominated by the drive towards higher housing densities.

Learning to confront complexity: what roles can a computer-based problem-solving scenario play?
It is suggested that existing approaches to sustainability education can be substantially complemented by computer-based problem-solving scenarios, offering genuine learning opportunities and deepening and personalizing the comprehension of known phenomena in complex problem-Solving. Expand
Politics, policies and processes: a multidisciplinary and multimethods research programme on policies on the social determinants of health inequity in Australia
The theoretical, methodological and policy engagement processes established will provide improved evidence for policy-makers who wish to reduce health inequities and inform a new generation of policy savvy knowledge on social determinants. Expand
Sustainability science as a transformative social learning process
Throughout history mankind has caused unintended changes in the natural environment, including phenomena such as extinction of vulnerable species and soil erosion from deforestation ( Crosby, 2015 ).Expand

This book is most obviously relevant to practitioners who already have some experience of multiagency facilitation, but might also serve as an introduction to working in this arena, if carefully supplemented with further reading and exploration of the topics it covers. Expand
Business dynamics : systems thinking and modelling for acomplex world
Requirements for the effective use of system dynamics are discussed and a successful application to a difficult business issue is illustrated. Expand
Simple models, powerful ideas: Towards effective integrative practice
Abstract Growing evidence that human societies are on an unsustainable development path has led to widespread calls for a better understanding of the complex dynamics of the human–Earth system. TheExpand
Human Health and Climate Change: Leverage Points for Adaptation in Urban Environments
It is suggested that the collaborative development of conceptual models can help a group to identify potential leverage points for effective adaptation, and so better meet the challenge of maintaining, and even improving, urban health in the face of climate change. Expand

How small system dynamics models can help the public policy process
Public policies often fail to achieve their intended result because of the complexity of both the environment and the policy-making process. In this article, we review the benefits of using smallExpand
Reflections on the foundations of system dynamics
The paper begins with historical background, clarifies the endogenous point of view, illustrates with examples, and argues that the endogenous Point of view is thesine qua non of systems approaches. Expand
