The Power to
Shift a System
Webinar: November 18th

Join us for the first in this free webinar series on November 18th
Time: 15:00-16:15 CET / 14:00-15:15 GMT / 9-10:15 EST

Charles Leadbeater and Jennie Winhall, from the Systems Innovation Initiative at the ROCKWOOL Foundation, outline a new framework to understand how people gain the power to reshape systems, in conversation with:Jeff Cyr, Raven Indigenous Capital Kenneth Bailey, The Design Studio for Social Intervention Afton Halloran, Sustainable Food Systems Transitions   Register hereAs systems change becomes more urgent, so does the question of who has the power to shift systems. Does it lie with powerful insiders and institutions, or activists and social movements? Where does the power to initiate change come from and how can hard and soft power be harnessed together to shift a system?

In this webinar we will share a new practical framework to help systems innovators identify in practice where power lies in a system, how it can be redirected and where the opportunities are to mobilise power in new forms to meet a new system purpose.  

The framework is set out in a new essay The Power to Shift Systems. Sign up to the webinar to receive an advance copy by email ahead of the event. 

Our paper Building Better Systems introduced four keys to unlock system innovation: purpose, power, relationships and resource flows. Through this webinar series over the next few months we will be sharing new frameworks to put these keys to work, and delving deeper into the issues involved with a host of inspiring systems innovation practitioners. When registering for this first event on power you can sign up to receive alerts for the subsequent events on purpose, relationships, resource flows and more.

We hope you will join us in what will be the first of many interesting talks and discussions.
