Place: ETH Hauptgebäude HG F 33.5 (new room!)
Time: 18.30 – 20.00

Topic: The agenda this meeting is devoted to further developing our own activities in particular those dedicated to teaching. During last year’s conference in St. Gallen the idea of a summer school has been discussed and we would like to identify possible options to bring this idea to fruition.

Questions to discuss:

  • target audience
  • potential locations and organising institution
  • content
  • funding
  • leading person within the Swiss Chapter to further push the initiative.

We hope that this discussion will provide a good starting point and the necessary momentum to realise a summer school in the context of systems thinking, complexity management and system dynamics.

Hope to see you in Zurich!

Chapter Meeting on 22. October 2012

Date: Monday, 22. October 2012
Place: ETH Hauptgebäude HG F 33.1
Time: 18.30 – 20.00

Topic:
This time we would like you to invite to a special event. Originating from a small group of our chapter, gathering round a table at ATRIO in Zurich with a beer in the hand … the initiative arouse to reflect with our system dynamics mindset about the idea of a basic income grant. We suggest that we use our collective experience and brain to further elaborate on this idea. To become more concrete: We intend to develop together a preliminary qualitative systems model about potential effects of this idea, based on the two documents attached below. Acknowledging the complexity of the problem we suggest to start from a very limited scope of arguments, namely the arguments of the proponents and to try to translate this argumentation into a systems model. Based on such a model it is intended to discuss the consistency of the argumentation. We are open to further outcomes of this endeavour and hope to have a fruitful and inspiring evening together.

Hope to see you in Zurich!
