SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 284
Title: SUSTAINABILITY OF SOCIAL SYSTEMS BY SUPPLENESS
Lead Author: Sayama, Hiroki
Abstract: This white paper proposes that one of the next grand challenges in the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences is to understand mechanisms of how dynamic meta-states of a complex system may be sustained through continual adaptive changes, or "suppleness," and to investigate how one could implement such mechanisms in our social, economical and political systems to achieve or enhance their sustainability. The idea of sustainability by suppleness is foundational because it is fundamentally different from existing ideas of sustainability by robustness or resilience. It is also transformative because it may provide novel perspectives to many of todays socio-economical and socio-ecological problems that call for new strategies to cope with inevitable environmental changes.
