The purpose of this training module is to build a solid knowledge foundation about food, farms and forests through a sustainability lens, and encourage you to practice core competence #1 - Global & Systemic mindset.

A global and systemic mindset is all about the ability to always use a systems thinking approach. Systems thinking is particularly useful in addressing complex or wicked problem situations, like to shape a sustainable food system.

Some questions to get you started:

  • What does a Global & Systemic Mindset mean for you, both in general and in your everyday life?
  • What are your strengths in regards to this core competence? What do you need to practice?
  • Would you be able to explain systems thinking to a fellow student?
  • What do you actually know regarding the reality of food, farms and forests in Sweden?
