Open meeting - winter 2015/16

An open meeting where a series of presentations of general interest regarding systems practice will be given - this will include 'craft' and active sessions, as well as introductions to theory.  

For this open meeting we would like to bring the two 'communities' of complexity and systems thinking together to explore what they have in common and what (if anything) is signficantly different. We have speakers on both complexity and viable system modelling, so the conversation should be lively, challenging and very interesting. This is one you really don't want to miss! Excellent speakers lined up!  

There is a fee of £10 for all attendees for these meetings (plus a small eventbrite fee), and booking is required via  

Please note that the eventbrite booking fee has been removed, so you pay only £10. For any queries, please email
