SDA supports the movement toward pragmatic systemic design practice development, applying the learning from the RSD Symposia to preferred methods and guidelines.
Announcing the official launch of Proceedings of Relating Systems Thinking and Design, RSD11. The whole RSD11 experience—submissions and reviews, RSDX and the University of Brighton event, and producing the proceedings—was a brilliant experience that’s advanced systemic design and the RSDsymposium.org repository.
The RSD symposia series was partly initiated in 2012 as a response to the dearth of scholarship and direction in the development of design theory and practice in complex systems.
SDA’s practice partners put systemic design to work in architecture and planning, economics and organisations, health and well-being, policy and governance, socioecological design, and sociotechnical systems.
