During the seminar, Tiina Wikstrom delivered on the theme “We Live in a Complex World” and mentioned the following: “We live in a complex world, where we see ourselves from sustainable to resilience, and then we witness disaster in one country and peace in another. As we live in a complex world, we witness pandemic situations and see the quick global change in some counties there are draught, chaotic situations and in other people are dying of hunger. The solution might not be easy but we need to address to people”
After, some questions were asked for discussion in groups with foreign students:
– What are the complexities in my field of studies? Why?
– What are the complex situations in my home country? Why?
– How is nature relevant in my field of studies? Why?
– What does sustainability mean to me?
– Do you want to be a leader? Why?
– What are the biggest problems in your fields of studies or future work? What about solutions?

All participants discussed complexities in the field of study, leadership and from technology to the definition of sustainability and with other topics. Some points of view were mentioned on complexity, for instance as Boisot and MC Kelly said “It takes complexity to beat complexity” and “The only thing that is constant is change” by Heraclitus.
All participants enjoyed the process of discussion found out a lot of new and interesting information, gained new experiences, and shared their views.
