COLLABORATE

Our programs are designed to facilitate change, build future-fit organisations, and collaborate towards breakthrough results for systems-level shifts. A shared understanding of our challenges and where we need to go, create the conditions for real transformation in society.

A NEW PARADIGM

Organisations face increasing challenges in the field of sustainability. This requires a different way of seeing and doing things. We help to make this shift through our education programs. We believe that the transition to a sustainable society begins by increasing awareness, commitment and competence in individuals to understand what sustainability means and to integrate sustainability principles into all of their decision-making and actions.

Education Programs

FACILITATE CHANGE

We challenge organisations to think about their fixed assumptions and help discover how sustainability can add value to their organisation or community.  A clear vision about the role in a sustainable future, appropriate strategies to get there and practical tools for innovation, implementation and communication assist in planning a path forward towards a successful future. In that way we pave the ground for new perspectives and game changing ideas.

Advisory Services

SHIFTING SYSTEMS

As organizations advance on their sustainability journeys, they eventually face challenges that are systemic in nature and require them to collaborate with other organizations and sectors. Sustainable systems can only result from systems-changing innovations, policies and partnerships arising from organizations and sectors collaborating effectively. Our unique contribution lies in our expertise in the social processes of sustainability-driven innovation

Transition Labs

THEORY OF CHANGE

We know that the transition to sustainability will be (and is being) led by innovators who create different ways of meeting human needs within the new design constraints and by the early adopters of their innovations. While most action and investment to spur the transition will take place within the context of institutions, organizations cannot themselves be sustainable in an unsustainable society. In the end, it is systems that must become sustainable.
