May 26, 17:00 - 21:30

Talking about the need to change whole systems – the systems we grew up to live in – can be difficult, even overwhelming. Together, let’s tackle the issues we have with addressing systems change and talk about possible solution approaches.

Systems change is an intentional process designed to change the status quo by shifting the function or structure of a system with purposeful interventions.

It is a journey which can require a radical change in people’s attitudes as well as in the ways people work. Systems change aims to bring about lasting change by altering underlying structures and supporting mechanisms, such as policies, routines, relationships, resources, power structures and values.


About the format:

This workshop will take place in the proven format of the ‘Unconference’. After an introductory input about systems change and why thinking in systems can help us understand and effect change in a complex world, the specific discussion topics will be determined by the participants, based on real cases and experiences.

Core questions related to systems change are:

What change is needed? Why is it needed? What might be the unintended consequences? How can change be effected?
