Hello Complexity Explorers, 

It's that time of year again. Complexity science provides crucial frameworks and quantitative tools for making sense of the events that defined 2020. This year, we learned just how practical fundamental research can be — even more so during extraordinary and challenging times. SFI scientists have been a source of key perspectives and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have not had the chance, check out Transmission* and the Complexity Podcast, where members of the SFI research community provide accessible, wide-ranging, and unique insights into this new reality.

2020 continues to remind us that SFI's contributions to complexity science play an invaluable role in informing our response not just to pandemics, but also to the spread of online hate and disinformation, ecological collapse and climate change, increasing inequality, the unprecedented growth of cities, the need to decarbonize our energy systems, and more.

SFI successfully adjusted to the novel landscape of 2020, for example:

Above all, this year our "Institute without walls" stayed true to its mission of “Searching for Order in the Complexity of Evolving Worlds.”

As a follower of SFI science and Complexity Explorer, you understand the critical importance of this research. We hope you will include the Santa Fe Institute in your 2020 end-of-year giving. Your contribution helps pioneer the science and foster the intellectual community humanity will need to face future crises.

You can donate online, or give in these additional ways. Please note, the CARES Act makes charitable giving even easier; learn more here.

Thank you for being part of this renegade team! Quite simply, we would not be here without science enthusiasts like you.
