Integrated Sustainability Training

The world is changing, but what about you? You're scanning the horizon looking for smart ways to progress and flourish. But what is the right direction, which solutions work and which are dead ends? How do you combine quick wins with necessary long term investments?

We believe that many answers lie in sustainability. Not the “sustainability” of power saving light bulbs or recycled toilet paper, but real integrated systemic innovation. What it is and why it leads to prolonged success is what you will discover in this training. We work on real-world cases, discuss, co-create and explore all aspects surrounding sustainability, including circularity, ethics, systems thinking, and resilience. For this we use the integrated sustainability framework SiD. The workshop includes:

  • SiD Systemic integrated sustainability theory

  • Principles of circular economy, biomimicry, blue economy, bio-based economy, Life Cycle Assesment, and sustainability labels such as FSC, BREEAM, LEED, and MSC

  • SiD Goal setting

  • SiD Impact assessment

  • SiD System mapping

  • SiD Network analysis

  • SiD Road mapping

  • Co-creation

  • Stakeholder involvement



Learn to tackle sustainability challenges on a system-level

In development for two decades, Symbiosis in Development has been succesfully applied to over 500 projects in contexts as diverse as urban renewal, policy making, design, business strategy, healthcare, and industrial innovation. SiD is the first complete framework for integrated systtemic development, from theory to practice. It enables different disciplines to work together and evaluate sustainability spectrum-wide. It uses systems thinking, systems mapping, design-thinking, and complexity thinking in a co-creation process.

By using a team-based approach it helps to structure and steer group processes from beginning to end, and supports collective understanding. This, in turn, supports the team;'s ability to both follow a long term vision, and apply immediate, concrete day to day action. This is demonstrated in the workshops through various group exercises.

Co-creation training

The training offers a basic introduction of SiD and practical group work using a case study. We mix presentations, games, and videos in an informal environment. A team of max 12 people from different professional backgrounds join and form co-creation teams. The teams are lead by trainer Tom Bosschaert, main developer of the SiD framework.

Certification

Participants receive an offical SiD basic training certificate upon full completion of the course. This enters participants in the SiD certification database which is currently under development, and will be published at the SiD website www.thinksid.org.
