Abstract: One of the most demanding tasks of the future will be to provide for a sustainable development of GAIA. As long as humankind is only focussed on the demands of humankind without being aware of the demands of GAIA as such - with other species and plants not necessarily directly connected to the welfare of humankind - true sustainable development is impossible. Humankind is required to work creatively on new and more appropriate ways to cope with the demands of the present and the future. To do so, the generation of sustainable innovation based on a systems point of view becomes a prerequisite. Hence, there are two mains fields of application for systems thinking: the field of understanding a considered system and the field of creatively finding solutions for a considered system. Since such systems mostly behave dynamically and the process of creative collaboration most often shows chaotic instead of purely deterministically structured and predictable patterns, the major question in this contribution is to consider nonlinear dynamic systems thinking respectively chaos theory accessible to the generation of innovation and creative problem-solving.
