Are you ready for some exciting news for our Young Modeler community? After taking on the worlds of blogging and live-stream interviews, we’ll add yet another format to our outreach and educational efforts by (co-)hosting a series of workshops and conferences.

Visit our Facebook page to follow all these events and more!

  • On Thursday, November 15th in Vienna, we’ll be having an introductory session to explore ‘Systems Thinking for Social Impact’. This workshop will provide an overview of systems thinking tools and strategies and is co-hosted by the social business ‘Art of Cooperation’. Sign up now for free and share this news with your friends in Austria!



  • In February 4-8, 2019, we’ll have the pleasure of co-organizing the very first social impact systems modeling conference, February 4-8, 2019, in The Hague, The Netherlands. System dynamicists, system thinkers, and social-impact communities from around the world will gather at TUDelft’s Policy Modelling Lab, Turfmarkt 99, The Hague for a conference of the Social Impact Special Interest Group of the System Dynamics Society.This event is all about learning from each other, exchanging approaches and models that work and have real impact, collaboration, and building long-term networks. For those who cannot make it to The Hague: there will be live streaming of the presentations. Stay informed in the Social Impact SIG’s Facebook group and let us know if you are interested in participating – personally or virtually from anywhere in the world!


Do you have any questions, want to participate in, help organize or contribute otherwise to any of these events? Please contact us anytime with your feedback and ideas!
