The complex challenges of today – such as inequality, environmental changes, financial instability, etc. – can’t be tackled by any one organization, but require the collaborative effort of many. What is needed are open spaces that bring the relevant participants together, provide them with the tools and methodology to guide them through an experimental process for them to understand the issues they face and start to collaboratively build new solutions.  In this live discussion, we will be exploring collaborative approaches to systems change, in particular the idea and practice of social labs. Variously referred to as systems innovation labs, living labs, change labs, co-labs or social labs all may be thought of as a way of doing social innovation and systems change in practice through creating platforms for collaboration.  Guest speakers: Zaid Hassan – CEO of 10 in 10 Author of “The Social Labs Revolution: A new approach to solving our most complex challenges” Zaid is a highly experienced facilitator, who has over fifteen years of experience supporting multi-stakeholder innovation working with governments, civil society and corporations.

Russ Gaskin – Managing Director of CoCreative Consulting Rus helps people who don’t know each other and often don’t even like each other solve complex problems together. His team at CoCreative currently supports 18 multistakeholder innovation networks working on challenges like sequestering atmospheric carbon through agriculture, aligning bank lending with climate realities, closing racial equity gaps in health and education, and shifting upstream determinants of health.
