Description

This paper describes the implementation of a Library of model fragments that integrates different models and captures essential concepts for understanding sustainable development related issues, presented in meaningful ways as simulations (Salles and Bredeweg, 2007). Input models to the Library come from the NaturNet – Redime1 Project case studies and from models about the Millennium Development Goals (Salles, 2005). As the Library includes a broad range of knowledge from different disciplines and a large number os scenarios and model fragments, it is necessary to create handles to explore the Library and to select clusters of concepts that may be used in curricula for learning about sustainability.

A library of model fragments on sustainability

This paper describes the implementation of a Library of model fragments that integrates different models and captures essential concepts for understanding sustainable development related issues, presented in meaningful ways as simulations (Salles and Bredeweg, 2007). Input models to the Library come from the NaturNet – Redime1 Project case studies and from models about the Millennium Development Goals (Salles, 2005). As the Library includes a broad range of knowledge from different disciplines and a large number os scenarios and model fragments, it is necessary to create handles to explore the Library and to select clusters of concepts that may be used in curricula for learning about sustainability.
