Systems Thinking
Lorax Project small group: Creating a new system, regenerative and sustainable, that makes the old system obsolete.
Concepts: leverage, Archetypes; limits to growth and tragedy of the commons (understanding systems increases leverage, nature should do most of the work)
Habits: Big picture, unintended consequences, a systems structure generates its behavior.
Tools: Behavior over time graphs, connection circles, causal loops showing positive reinforcement and exponential growth.

1. Final group poster presentations
2. Final connection circle incorporating the elements to design a system of interdependent parts that at first regenerates then sustains its goals.
