A global experimental knowledge lab for creative change-makers founded by @leylaacaroglu, focused on all things sustainability, systems & design 💥
There’s a good reason that Systems Thinking is our most popular course ➡️ We can’t solve the world’s complex social and environmental issues without it! Unfortunately most of us are taught to think in linear, reductive ways that make us miss out on the interconnected magic of the systems dynamically coexisting around us. Watch this reel for a quick intro on what systems thinking is, and stay tuned for Part 2 where we introduce how you can begin to connect the dots and become a systems thinker 🧠 Tip: If you’re struggling to see all the text, just tap the reels icon in the bottom left corner to expand it 👌 And if you want to take our online intro Systems Thinking course that thousands of creative changemakers around the world have taken, head to the link in our bio. If you’re more advanced in your systems mindset, we also have classes like Systems Interventions and Circular Systems Design that you can browse 💥Any questions about Systems Thinking, drop them below 👇  #unschoolsonline

“Wishcycling is when people place non-recyclable items in the recycling and hope those items will end up being recycled. The unfortunate reality, though, is that these actions contaminate the recycling stream and reinforce the very problem of waste.
Wishcycling comes from a place of good intentions, but as we all know, good intentions do not always lead to good outcomes.

 I think it’s safe to say everyone has done this at some stage.

We’ve popped the coffee cup into the recycling bin with some coffee still in it and the lid on, or that thin plastic wrapper, a pizza box, lightbulb, broken drinking glass, batteries, chopsticks, maybe even an extension cord (I’ve seen it happen), and hoped that it would go off and be magically made into some new thing.

Yet the truth is, we don’t have a magical recycling system where everything can be easily transformed into something new. In fact, most things you think are recyclable, are probably not.” New article by @leylaacaroglu — continue reading via the link in our bio! 🔗  #linkinbio 📷 Image via Paul Schellekens on @unsplash

Systems thinking requires a shift in our perception of the world around us 🌐 ➡ In order to build a new multidimensional thinking framework, we need to discover the dynamics and interconnectedness of the systems at play... which is exactly where systems mapping tools come in! 📝 Creating systems maps provides an exploration of the system, communicates understanding, and allows for the identification of knowledge gaps, intervention points, and insights 🔎 Click the link in our bio to read our article of the month, a free resource on creating  #systemsmaps! 🔗⠀
