Closed Worlds invites us to explore 41 different closed systems ranging from architecture to permaculture. In this Term 2 workshop, students will gain an understanding of the variety and sustainable principles of closed systems.

Through brain storming and discussion students will consider the real life challenge of waste generation and disposal in their school. Using the principles of design thinking, students will be guided in rapid idea generation techniques to explore the potential connections between waste and needs. Students will develop methods to close the link between the two, creating a closed loop system.

The workshop is designed to be either a unique experience or a means to understand the fundamentals of closed loop systems and rapid idea generation techniques that can be applied to problem solving in the school environment.

This workshop will be led by UTS Phd candidate Chris Banham, based on a postgraduate course led by Dr Thomas Lee.
