System Innovation in the Wake of #IPCC6
Event by Systems Change Finland
Tue, Aug 31, 2021, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM (UK)
The Sensemaking meetup is Systems Change Finland’s monthly meetup where we explore topics related to applied Systems Thinking and Complexity with interesting speakers. Instead of being one-sided lectures, our meetups are spaces where participants can also make sense about the topics with each other.
In August’s meetup on Tuesday 31.8.2021 17:00-18:30 EEST UTC+3 the discussion will be ignited by İdil Gaziulusoy, Professor of Sustainable Design at the Aalto University who will be speaking about Systems Innovation in the Wake of the 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in early August. (https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg1/).
İdil Gaziulusoy is Professor of Sustainable Design at Aalto University and leader of NODUS Sustainable Design Research Group (https://www.aalto.fi/en/department-of-design/nodus-sustainable-design-research-group). İdil is a sustainability scientist and a design researcher, developing a teaching and research portfolio for imagining sustainable, equitable and resilient future systems through various approaches in design research and developing interventions to achieve these proposals. Her work is concerned with socio-technical and socio-ecological systems with a particular focus on production-consumption systems and cities. She’s a global pioneer in the emerging area of design for sustainability transitions, developing theories and methods/tools for design practice dealing with sustainability transitions. Her PhD (completed in 2010) focused on system innovation in companies to align innovation strategies with the needed and unfolding, long-term, structural sustainability transitions.
She has worked as a researcher, lecturer and consultant in Australia, New Zealand and Turkey before moving to Helsinki. The open access book Design for Sustainability: A Multi-level Framework from Products to Socio-technical Systems İdil has co-authored can be downloaded through this link: https://www.taylorfrancis.com/books/9780429456510.
