Ecopolicy: The Final
Students have taken part in a series of competitions to learn about interconnected thinking in a cybernetics simulation game Ecopolicy.
Government and business institutions are under pressure to make the right investment decisions in the face of a continually changing and uncertain geo-political and socioeconomic landscape. There are a multitude of difficult, long-term global challenges ahead, almost all of which are coupled with our most pressing national and local concerns.
Despite many efforts to deal with these complex issues facing our society the solutions so far are seldom long lasting, because "treating the symptoms" and "quick fixes", using traditional linear thinking, are the easiest way out, but do not deliver the solutions.
A first in Australia! An exciting simulation game has been launched in Adelaide high schools, in which competing teams will act like the government of a country in despair, with the goal to stabilise the country through developing a balance between education, health, politics, production, environment, quality of life, and population growth.
We invite all interested parties to attend the final of Ecopolicy competition, named Ecopolicyade. Sixteen schools have taken part in the game over the last few months, and the winning team from each school will now compete against other participating schools in the presence of managers and decision makers from Government, businesses and organisations.
In attendance will be the Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood and representatives from State Government. Your presence will support our future leaders and managers in developing new ways of thinking that are underpinned by systems design.
