We are supporting the design and implementation of Nexus for Change, an upcoming conference bringing together people who work with systemic change methodologies from a variety of perspectives -- practitioners, researchers, educators, leaders & activists. Essentially we are asking the question: What would be possible if we got to know each other better?
For example, what kinds of collaborations might emerge between researchers and practitioners? How might the perspectives of thought leaders and clients impact the way change methods are taught to others? How can activists make use of and participate in research while they learn to implement cutting edge methodologies to engage their communities of practice?
This convergence of perspectives is unusual in the world of change methods, so we are looking forward to what emerges from it!
