We interviewed many experts including researchers, scientists and professionals to explore the role of global system science (GSS) in addressing many issues that society is facing today and in the future. Specially we are interested in how GSS can help shape better policy making and ways to communicate complex systems thinking to the general public and policy makers. Thanks to all of the interview participants who brought a wide range of perspectives to the conversation.
The series of interviews can be found in our new GSDP Podcasts section!
