Social Innovation: Leveraging Systems Thinking to Improve Community Partnerships, Tamarack Institute

September 14, 2017

12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EDT

Over many decades, many “solutions” to social and environmental problems in local and global communities have been implemented without a thorough understanding of complexities; hence, many have resulted in un-intended negative impacts. The shift to systems thinking and analysis has helped improve our understanding of interdependencies and complexities. This shift has been integral in identifying intended and unintended positive and negative impacts in communities. In this webinar, we will take a brief look at what ecosystems are and how systems thinking can be used to better understand the positive and negative impacts of your work in the community. We will then help you understand, through examples, how to leverage this system understanding to build partnerships across your community and achieve sustainable solutions to social/environmental issues.
