SDA supports the movement toward pragmatic systemic design practice development, applying the learning from the RSD Symposia to preferred methods and guidelines.
The 11th Relating Systems Thinking and Design Symposium was hosted by the University of Brighton, UK. The programme included 122 papers, presented in 30 sessions over four days. Pre-prints are posted, and full final proceedings will be available in early 2023.
The RSD symposia series was partly initiated 10 years ago 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.
