2020 has seen some big headlines. The global disruption has meant large scale system transitions have become more necessary, and more visible. There is also activity behind the headlines. What happens when we look to instances of big collaborations and small circles? What is their role in emerging systems? Systems transitions are not smooth or clean experiences. There is no clear start or clear end, even the smallest shifts are usually slow, and gritty work. More and more we’re seeing the need for better collaborations, genuine power sharing and meaningful cross-sector coalitions as a more effective, and inclusive way to bring about these transitions.
Join us for a conversation with Kelly Ann (Beyond Sticky Notes) and Felicity and Hya (WeSolve) as they share their experiences of working within systems, with small circles and with a purposely wide range of collaborators.
- They will share their thoughts on:
- the ‘boring revolution’ and its role in system transition
- the role of small circles in transition to the new system
- the role of radical collaborations in transitioning to the new system
- why we need more ‘co-heroes’ and less heroes
- how systems are built on relationships and how to prioritise them in your work
- some recent examples of system change initiatives in the Philippines
- how they work to meaningfully connect with their community
- how, in their different contexts they work to ensure that new voices of power and experience are heard and centred
