The School of System Change: Designing a learning system as a system change endeavor

Format: Papers, RSD6, Topic: Learning & Education

Corina Angheloiu, Laura Winn, and Anna Birney

Forum for the Future, a global sustainability non-profit founded in 1996, has been developing the School of System Change as a learning platform that aims to equip emerging leaders with the ability to catalyse systems change for sustainability and to grow the global community of change agents. This article introduces the approach we have been taking over the last two years to develop the School of System Change. It was and is our intention to develop this initiative as a system change endeavour in itself, so as to practice what we teach. The School uses five core capabilities for system change (Birney, 2016) as its organising framing and as such this will be used as the organising concept for the article. By presenting our background intentions and methodologies, and by reflecting on the challenges of implementing we hope to invite others to support the development of the School.
