IFF Member Tony Hodgson has developed a World System Model (see below) as a tried, tested and fine-tuned representation of the complexity of the global problematique. It offers the clearest way yet of examining and understanding the interconnected problems we face and of formulating creative and transformative ways of approaching those problems. It can be used in many different ways – for developing strategic resilience, for interpreting horizon scanning, and as an educational tool for one-planet living.
The IFF World Game makes the model immediately accessible to any group (school governors, city councillors, health service managers, concerned citizens, boards of directors, UN High Commission and so on). IFF use this highly participative process in many different ways – and the Game is now also available in downloadable form to play with any small group or community.
There is more material in these pages about the structure of the model, the scanning database that supports it etc. But the fullest explanation is in Tony Hodgson’s book Ready for Anything: Designing Resilience in a Transforming World.
