Pamela Buckle Henning: The Challenge of Graduate Research in systems science and practice
Systemic Sustainability and Systems Literacy ultimately involve transformative changes at the personal and social level. What individual competencies are needed and how will student researchers navigate the treacherous waters ahead for ‘out-of-the-box’ thinkers? We emphasize the importance of integrated personal skills and effective collaborative and innovative networking to build transformative communities.

Glanville Memorial Talk: Delia Pembrey MacNamara - Connecting and Collaborating in a Networked World (for Systemic Purpose/Action)
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
