Global Consortium for Systems Research (GCSR) 2022–2023 10th Anniversary Strategic Plan

NEW YORK - Oct. 28, 2022 - PRLog -- The Global Consortium for Systems Research (GCSR) was convened following the 2013 symposium at The Royal Society, Global Integrated Assessment: Making Sense of Complexity in an Interdependent World.

As part of the 10th Anniversary Strategic Plan, we would like to reaffirm GCSR's commitment to being a force for positive change through cutting-edge and pragmatic research. We are pleased to present a series of initiatives under our revised mandate: We study, forecast, and guide systems change to solve grand challenges. Grand challenges such as the 2030 SDGs are characterized by their high global priority and complex causality: attempts to intervene create irreversible changes as well as unintended second and third order consequences.

Researchers have a critical role to play in showing the way forward. GCSR will serve as a platform to convene experts such as yourself in times of great uncertainty.

1. Become an Associate Member

We are an inclusive global community and anyone can now become an Associate Member for free by signing up for the GCSR list on JISCMail: We will use the GCSR list not only for discussions, but also to alert members about GCSR events, major changes to the contents of the website, and more.

2. Working Groups

We are pleased to build upon the 5 subject categories GCSR has focused on in the past and create working groups around topics including:
  • WG1: Systems Thinking
  • WG2: Systems Research Financing and Opportunities
  • WG3: Global Systems and Peace
  • WG4: Space Governance
  • WG5: Geoengineering and Socio-Ecological Systems
  • WG6: Health Policy and Systems Research
  • WG7: Action Research and Practice-Based Research
  • WG8: Systems Research and Futures Studies
  • WG9: Systems Change
  • WG10: Teaching Pedagogy and Curriculum Development
To build a robust community, our priority for 2022-2023 will include WG1: Systems Thinking, to provide an approachable starting point for people interested in engaging, and WG2: Systems Research Financing and Opportunities, to provide researchers with funding and opportunities to develop their work.

3. Steering Committee

Each Working Group will have a 3-5 member volunteer Steering Committee as well as Steering Committee Lead or Co-Leads.

4. GCSR Systems Research Toolkit

We are pleased to launch the GCSR Systems Research Toolkit including models for organizations, teams, and individuals. We will continue to add to, modify, and develop the Toolkit.
