The IFSR Conversations on Systems Science that took place in April 2018, in the Austrian city of Linz, were the first I participated in. They have proven to be an almost priceless opportunity to converse and work for a week with fellow-systems practitioners and to discuss, define and elaborate solutions for challenges in our societies. We worked on Systems Practice: how can we equip system practitioners with the collective system science skills to observe, understand, and steer complex systems?
