Abstract for: Metaphorical Models for Managing the Transition from Industrial Growth to Sustainability

Overshoot in processes of growth is common. "To overshoot means to go beyond limits inadvertently, without meaning to do so" (from Beyond the Limits 1992). In this workshop we use small metaphorical models and simulators to examine overshoot in global industrial growth and the process of managing the global transition to a sustainable society. We revisit the scenario conditions in World Dynamics required for sustainability. Using a small model of a regulated fishery we examine the role of regulation in creating a sustainable future.
