COVID-19 and the ensuing global pandemic has represented the greatest public health challenge of a generation. Yet, this is just one of a number of complex global challenges that we face: an expansive list that also includes climate change, growing inequality, food security, migration, and many others. It is undeniable that both state and non-state actors are being asked to solve increasingly complex problems.
So how might we respond to these challenges, and what questions need to be explored along the way? Often in our work, we focus on how people make their best contribution: What leadership is required when dealing with the greatest complexity faced by a generation? What skills and capabilities are valued and most impactful? Do we already have the tools and techniques to respond to 21st century challenges, and if yes, where does this expertise exist?
Enter Systems convening.
