We have just about 100 participants for the conference with another 20 guests. The excitement is building by the day now.
The planning phase of the conference is completed, and we are all now in the execution phase. For those attending please note the following:
Most of all, remember this is a bucket-list experience, both in terms of the conference experience and venue. Your presence enhances the experience for everyone! Come with an open mind ready to experience Africa, with all its vibrancy and imperfection. From the moment you step into the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg you are in Africa! Africa is vibrant; African people mirror your attitude (smile and greet and you will see what I mean); Africans accept and expect that not all things are perfect. Joy is independent from suffering. Come and embrace Africa with patience and an attitude of service to others.
I can’t wait to see you in Skukuza!

We invite you to come to the Kruger Park to be part of an experience of a life-time. Experience the situatedness of the venue under the African skies. The conference venue enables many Africans to attend, thereby widening the footprint of our society and affording us to learn from each other.
Stories of our systems practice will showcase the impact we have as systems practitioners. We also reflect on our discipline as a profession. Our workshops provide a diversity of experience and future planning of the ISSS.
The weeklong Systems Thinking in Practice Workshop provides a unique opportunity to develop your skills.
Another unique experience is our research project on reflection during our conference.
Science-based knowledge of systems is one of the keys to robust application in various professions. I am excited that ISSS will bring experts in systems knowledge and systems practice together to inspire each other and to make each other better. Also, ISSS is fulfilling its promise to build a bridge to African scholars and practitioners and extend our mutual networks. Let’s act together in a way that provides us with more knowledge and options for action than we had before.
