Free Systemic Design MOOC: Designing Resilient Regenerative Systems


The new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) series by Systemic Design Labs ⎟ETH Zurich entitled “Designing Resilient Regenerative Systems” hybridizes sustainability science, systemic design and transformative action. It provides worldviews, tools, illustrations and transformative networks to build capacities and engage in systemic innovation of complex systems.

The MOOC is featuring a virtual-real didactic concept, where local physical social outdoor action is stimulated and incubated by virtual means.
