Learn how to drive social change with Systems Thinking
Working towards social change can be a complex and difficult process. Social issues can be multilayered, interacting between the individual, the state, the community and institutions. There are so many different ways to change the way things, people or systems work – how do you know if what you have in front of you is the right approach or analysis?
Our Systems Thinking for Social Change is an introductory course in system thinking. In this half a day course (or two online modules) you will understand that different ways to achieve change, know what is meant by ‘systems’ and ‘systems thinking’ , what tools to use and most importantly – when to use this particular approach. You will also leave with an understanding of YOUR role in systems change and where to find out more information and support for it.
