Welcome to the

System thinking & changemaking Information design capstone

Land Acknowledgement

Mount Royal University is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kanai, the Tsuut’ina and the Iyarhe Nakoda. We are situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. The traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kinsstis”, which we now call the City of Calgary. 

We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations, Indigenous and non, who live, work and play and help us steward this land, honour and celebrate this territory.

Throughout the 2021 Fall semester, senior-level Information Design students used a systems-thinking approach to examine the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Our students are tenacious problem seekers and problem solvers who care deeply about making a positive impact on the world around them. Our hope is that these projects can be a catalyst for change-making.
