In this publication, Rachel Sinha of The Systems Studio and Tim Draimin of Social Innovation Generation have created two maps designed to shine a light on the work of pioneers for systems change.
The post-war era has witnessed an unprecedented growth of global, national and regional systems, but systemic challenges like climate change and inequality are undermining the viability and resilience of our 20th century systems. A community of practitioners is trying to shift incumbent systems no longer fit for purpose and build new ones that work for our current reality.
Sinha and Draimin believe the field will be better able to organise itself if it can see itself more clearly. A clearer picture leads to greater connectivity, connectivity leads to stronger networks, and accelerates the best initiatives we so badly need if we are to effectively shift systems.
