Event Details

The Global Obesity Centre (GLOBE), based at Deakin University, is pleased to host a two-day workshop on how systems thinking can be used to address complex problems and achieve collective impact. The workshop will cover how STICK-E, a software for visualising complex health problems like obesity, mental health, or violence prevention, can be used to promote systems thinking to begin a community-based approach to health promotion. The workshop will cover the basics of systems thinking, facilitation of community-based systems workshops, how to use STICK-E to aid in systems thinking, and how to translate systems thinking into action.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Summarise important basic concepts in system dynamics, a methodology of systems thinking
  • Use STICK-E, a software to visualise and understand systems
  • Help plan and implement a small community-based systems project to address a social or health issue

Workshop Presenters: Professor Steven Allender, Andrew Brown, and Dr. Josh Hayward
