using systems thinking to transform society: the european food system as a case study

report: WWF

from the report:

In this guidebook, we first explain the basics of systems theory. Common patterns we see in system dynamics, which perpetuate problems, are often termed ‘system archetypes’. As a starting point, some of these archetypes are introduced with examples from the food system, to explain why it is difficult to break free of destructive cycles of behaviour. Following the introduction to systems theory, we explain our method for finding leverage for change using applied systems thinking. Using the analogy of how a lever works, we introduce the three steps we use to identify the actions which will create the type of outcome we are looking for.
