At IIASA we believe that thinking in systems is a skill that is essential for dealing with today’s and tomorrow’s complex challenges. We also believe that future leaders need to acquire systems thinking skills as early as possible. Therefore, we not only train graduate and postgraduate students, PhD candidates, postdocs, and professionals but also bring systems thinking to the kids and teenagers at schools to develop relevant skills at a point where young people start to think fundamentally about the complexity of the natural and social world they live in.
