Descripción de “Sustainability through Soccer: Systems-Thinking in Action (Coursera)”

This course takes learners on a journey through a progression of systems-thinking and sustainability concepts. Using the beautiful game of soccer as an analogy, we’ll work together to illuminate real-world interdependencies (such as between climate change and human rights), building the chain of concepts in a fun, accessible way. Soccer nerds and newbies alike will be entertained and, ultimately, rewarded with the epiphanies that come from seeing in systems more clearly.

Those who complete the course will: create examples of systems parts, boundaries, and behaviors related to sustainability (and soccer); practice evaluating the sustainability of systems they care about using several complementary methods; generate ideas to improve the sustainability of a system they care about; and explain a mindset shift that would enhance the sustainability of a system they care about.

Syllabus

WEEK 1

Background

On sustainability, what soccer and systems-thinking have to do with it, and how I’m qualified to explain.

System Parts

Systems-thinking is the guide for our sustainability quest, and systems are made up of some basic parts: elements, flows, stocks, feedback loops, and purposes.

Graded: Physical flows

Graded: Stocks

WEEK 2

System Boundaries

Our approach to sustainability depends on how we define our system boundaries. What must we consider? What can we leave out? And, what can we reasonably infer from the perspective we define?

Graded: Space boundaries

Graded: Inputs and outputs

WEEK 3

System Behaviors

With parts and boundaries defined, we can detect system-level behaviors and discover how they affect sustainability.

Graded: Self-organization

Graded: Resilience

WEEK 4

Evaluating Systems

To evaluate sustainability in our systems, and check our progress, there are properties to consider and methods to apply.

Graded: Carrying capacities

Graded: Life cycle assessment – your footprint

WEEK 5

Creating Sustainable Systems

Once we define and evaluate our systems, then we’re ready to create systems that are more sustainable.

Graded: Biomimicry

Graded: Polycentrism

Graded: Fixing inequality

WEEK 6

The Endless Quest for Sustainability

There is no magical fix; pursuing sustainability is an endless quest of constant effort at the limits of our abilities, and that’s where the fun is.

Graded: Visioning activity
