Strategies for Communicating Systems Models

CommunicationFaculty: Dr. Damon Hall

People and groups who make decisions about environmental management and sustainability must share a common set of assumptions about the complex systems in which they operate. Social-ecological systems models can help communicate this shared understanding.

The project involved collaboration among systems modelers and sustainability science researchers to reflect on systems communication successes and failures. Researchers drew from past experiences and the science communication literature to identify improved strategies for systems modelers to use when explaining complex, dynamic systems to diverse stakeholders. 

This ongoing project has been funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Park Service and conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and faculty at Cardiff University, Texas State University, and Texas A&M University.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
