Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

The SPICOSA approach:

Views the coast as a system with many physical and human elements AND conceptual/ methodological systems to explore and address issues.

Popperian domains: physical/mind/information.

Domains lack a common quality but have points of interaction between them.

Systems Approach is the selected methodology to bring domains together.

...but not mechanical – evolving clockwork.


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

?

Clocks can change and evolve over time and situation…..

….so can coasts due to natural processes or human management


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Multiple domains – « worlds ».

Hard and soft systems.

Models (conceptual, mathematical & numerical).

Systems thinking.


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Cause and effect: DPSIR.

Scale (size + resolution).

Multiple perceptions.

Support decision making.


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

Role and aim of this workshop:

SPICOSA’s role is to support « decision making processes aiming at improving the sustainability of Coastal Systems.. ».

We don’t « do » management.

We don’t « advise » on management.

We do provide knowledge to help managers.

.....BUT.....


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

Role and aim of this workshop:

...SPICOSA is an academic framework

....SPICOSA is an uproven approach

.....SPICOSA has the opportunity to be tested out at SSA’s (including Gdansk).


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

Role and aim of this workshop:

Thus, we wish to « ground truth » the project in management reality.

This involves interacting with « real » people (stakeholders)....like you!

We hope you will gain insights into approaches and ways to view the coastal system.


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

Role and aim of this workshop:

Thus, the aim of this workshop is « to develop awareness in Gdansk stakeholders of the SPICOSA approach and to jointly ground-truth some key aspects of the Cork site approach».


Introduction to the spicosa project and workshop aims

Role and aim of this workshop:

The workshop is designed to promote interaction, free-thinking & innovation.

Differences of views are supported!

We will facilitate but the result is in your hands.
