Today we live in a world of systems which is increasingly interconnected and dynamic. The systems are created by human individuals with their intentions and values in different social, cultural and economic structures.

Our challenge is to learn ways to act intelligently from within this complex to create sustainable societies and policies and to make a better life possible for everyone. The environment is always a key factor in our systems and an overall concern that calls for fresh perspectives and creative thinking.

The seminar discussed perspectives and ways to better meet these challenges.
