Economics of Social Change: Workshop Series – Systems Thinking and Practice for a New Economy

November 27, 2019

Building inclusive economies often requires systems change to enable more community-based economic development.

This workshop will explore the importance of systems thinking in a new economy, and the roles of policy, programming, and power in systems change.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about ways you can create systems change through individual actions, collaborative networks and advocacy.

  • Reflect on potential leverage points for economic systems change.

  • Practice using mapping tools to see and better understand systems that impact you and your work.

Facilitated by: Brooks Hanewich, MatchWork

This event is part of a five-part Economics of Social Change workshop series to explore connections between the local economy, community development and social change. Each workshop is facilitated by local practitioners, introduces hands-on tools and features guest speakers who are working on the ground with community economic development and economic justice issues.

Sign up for the whole series (recommended) or individual workshops.
