Event description
Join us for a training that equips you with a toolbox to become an effective change agent for sustainability in your area of influence.

About this Event

One of the many challenges of working in sustainability is its multifaceted nature, and the deriving complexity. In a rapidly changing world, individuals and organizations across fields aim to have a truly positive impact on the world. In the effort, they face a plethora of concepts and approaches.

How do we make sure our work contributes to a more sustainable society?

Join us for a 3-day training that equips you with a practical toolbox to be an effective change agent, in any area you want to have a substantially positive impact on.

In this training, you familiarize with the Symbiosis in Development (SiD) framework. SiD is the first complete framework for integrated sustainability, and it is rooted in systems thinking, system mapping, design- and complexity-thinking, and co-creation. The framework has been successfully applied in projects by global business and industry leaders to catalyze the sustainability of whole sectors. Read more on www.thinksid.org.

Outcomes

The course increases your sustainability literacy and leadership skills. You become more fluent in recognizing patterns and interconnections in society. As a result, you are able to take on increasingly complex issues through strategic thinking.

You leave the training with a practical toolbox for lasting change. You acquire the tools to quickly create alignment and consensus in your team, formulating comprehensive goals for substantially positive societal impact, as well as agile strategies to achieve them.

Learning goals

After attending the training, you are able to:

› Identify core concepts of systems thinking and network theory underlying sustainability.

› Interpret systemic behaviors in society and how they relate to sustainability transitions.

› Re-frame the way they define success in sustainability projects.

› Perform quick impact scans, and design strategies and road maps for systemic sustainable impact.

› Apply SiD to your real-world case

What people say about the training

"After attending the SiD training, we used system- and network- related concepts directly on our first sustainability assignment. For a local government we were asked to make an action plan for their sustainability program. By mind mapping relationships across the full set of sustainability dimensions we created insight to set priorities and finally make budget decisions."

Mark Bouman, Director at Urban Reality
