Heron Island Complex Systems Summer School, 16–27 January, 2012 (Heron Island, Queensland, Australia)

“Business is arguably the human enterprise that drives our use (and abuse) of natural resources more than any other activity. Business and the biosphere are therefore two complex systems intricately linked. Achieving global sustainability thus requires understanding the complex structure and dynamics of “coupled business and biological systems” and particularly developing tools to analyse their interconnectivity across multiple scales of space, time and organisation… This leads us away from disciplinary models of isolated systems to the development of integrated regional models right up to modelling the whole earth system. Our summer school will explore new advances and techniques that can be applied to model coupled business and biological systems from local to global scales.”
