Jai (James) Syvitski: From politics to remote sensing: The Indus Flood of 2010 – unfolding of a disaster
The Pakistan flooding, July-November 2010, caused ~2000 fatalities, displaced 20,000,000 inhabitants for weeks to many months, and was 7.5 on a duration-area affected-intensity scale that compares flood magnitudes on a global basis. Exceptional damage was inflicted on crops and cropland and on agriculture support systems such as canals and levees. Total economic impact reached 43 billion USD; 4,500,000 mainly agricultural workers lost their employment for 2010-2011. The catastrophic flood was associated with unusually intense but not unprecedented rainfall in the upland catchment. Most damage was caused by multiple failures of irrigation system levees, and by barrage-related backwater effects that initiated failures and led to avulsions (sudden changes in flow location). The meteorological events did not cause the catastrophe. Instead, the lack of planned accommodation to the river's high sediment load set the stage for super-elevation of the Indus above the surrounding terrain, dangerous levee failures, and channel avulsions. The dynamics of this remarkable event demonstrate that planning for major flow diversions is a necessary component of effective flood control along this and other avulsion-prone rivers. This disaster will serve as an example to discuss the ‘lessons learnt’ for all stakeholders.

John Fullerton: Reimagining Capitalism - Transitioning to a Regenerative Economy
The Earth is full of Economies and the Earth is a system that is not growing in size, therefore what the Earth contains cannot grow indefinitely without harming another part.  We must discover therefore, other kinds of economic systems that do not have growth as the primary goal. The “engineering constraints” must be non-growing economies that nevertheless provide for human and non-human wellbeing. What sources can we find for inspiration and insight to travel this very new, exhilarating and formidable trail?  What are the consequences for teaching economics and policy recommendations?

Rick Dove: Enabling and Facilitating Engineered Sustainability
Engineered system solutions are confronting an increasing rate of evolution in their operational environments – bringing both threat and opportunity. Sustaining these systems requires enabling and facilitating a capability to evolve in concert. The agility of a system to respond effectively to evolutionary change is a function of its architecture, design, and operational behavior. We will look under the hood of effective examples, focusing on the enabling and facilitating design characteristics that manifest as resilience and composability. Comparisons will be made of natural system sustainability-mechanisms with artificial system analogs. The law of natural selection rules well beyond the organisms in the biosphere, with the operational environment harshly determining what is sustained. The points to be made come from 25 years of analyzing countless systems for common concepts that enable and facilitate sustainability, and more recently, application of these concepts to a critical need for agile security in the face of intelligent and determined agile adversaries.

We live in a world that is increasingly networked technologically, with a growing diversity in methods and media of communication and connection, providing an ever increasing level of complexity.  This network of complexity and diversity is presenting both opportunities in terms of innovation and community, and threats in terms of uncertainty, risks and unforeseen disruptive events.  Yet is this network, or ecology of networks, a system?  When does a network become a system and what is our role within the system to harness the potential of the networks for systemic purposes and systemic action?   Exploring critical systems thinking, in particular the boundary, cybernetics and design thinking, can we build effective systemic capacity for collaboration and purposeful action to educate, inform and inspire engagement with systems literacy within and beyond the systems community?Keywords: Critical Systems Thinking, Boundary, Boundaries, Cybernetics, Networks, Collaboration, Connection, Leadership, Systemic
