The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) cooperated with the Ridge View Residential College (RVRC) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) to organise a workshop for NUS students on systems thinking for sustainable development.
The Workshop on Visualising Interconnections for Sustainable Development aimed to develop knowledge on how to approach sustainability issues. The workshop emphasised systems thinking, a framework that identifies dynamic relationships among different factors in a system, to create effective programming to promote sustainability. It used non-formal education and experiential learning in order to support the individual growth of participants, encouraged participants to learn from each other, and empowered them to initiative their own projects to support sustainable development.
Participants of the workshop were given the opportunity to undertake a community project on promoting sustainability using the skillsets that they acquired from the workshop.
