And it depends on focused work, shared knowledge, solidarity and collective activism.
The current state of the globe isn’t pretty. We are facing a climate crisis, COVID and the importance of addressing Truth and Reconciliation. There is a crisis of affordable housing, together with gross wealth inequality coupled with young people caught in the acronym NEET, that is, Not in Education, Employment or Training. There is a rising tide of racism and sexism, combined with a strident white supremacist inflected nationalism. All this calls immediately for a cease and desist order on incremental change, and the small hopes and tidy individual dreams that have proven ineffectual. The impossible happens, but so much depends on focused work, shared knowledge, solidarity and collective activism around systems change, and systems impact.
This site is for those wanting knowledge and perspective on systems change, social impact, systems thinking, developmental evaluation. We want to combine both theory and practice. The theory will be an oddball mixture of stuff. But we also want to include some case studies and resources that will help us all together develop knowledge about systems thinking and systemic, transformative, change.
And this site promotes an open commons approach, everything here is shared knowledge and for community use. We are inviting you to contribute your thoughts, resources, hints and strategies to this site.
