Feedback on the SD Workshops and Mentorship hosted by the SASD Chapter
"Although I have exposure to other Systems Analysis techniques from my MSc degree in Bioresources Systems, System Dynamics was a whole new intellectual ground that I began to navigate for my PhD studies. This competition has not only helped me gain knowledge that became an aid in developing a model simulating household solid waste management in a selected municipality but has also given me a whole new lens through which I now view problems, the society and the world. I am grateful!" - Workshop attendee
