Connect for (a) Change: Engage to Transform

humankind’s proposal,  “Connect for (a) Change,” has been selected to be part of a global initiative supported by MIT called the Societal Transformation Lab.

We are looking for an organization, coalition, or community in the San Diego region that is:

  • Working toward a better future with a specific focus for change

  • Willing to experiment with new tools and methodologies for engagement

  • Interested in being part of a global learning community

The Lab, from February to May 2019, will explore ways for organizations and coalitions to move from “ego-systems” to ecosystems – recognizing and engaging multiple stakeholders in co-creating novel approaches that deliver sustainable change.

We’ve been developing a modular process that uses collective experiential learning to take people from meaningful conversations around a divide in their community to shared aspirations and ideas for change and to then translate those ideas into specific actions or policy proposals.

Connect for a Change U

With this project we want to give people a space and ways to create connections around challenges we face as communities, and to move to articulating shared aspirations for change that lead to action, advocacy, and/or policymaking.

humankind will provide facilitation, research, and coordination, working with you weekly from February through May to codesign and implement a process that can transform your community.

We will be interviewing potential collaborators now through mid January.

For those that are interested, please email us at info@humankindsandiego.org by January 7th with your general interest to explore the opportunity.
