UPCOMING EVENTS

As systems change becomes more urgent, so does the question of who has the power to shift systems. Does it lie with powerful insiders and institutions, or activists and social movements? Where does the power to initiate change come from and how can hard and soft power be harnessed together to shift a system?
In this webinar we will share a new practical framework to help systems innovators identify in practice where power lies in a system, how it can be redirected and where the opportunities are to mobilise power in new forms to meet a new system purpose.

How do we address the UK's housing crisis through new holistic models of planning & development?
The way we approach housing development over the next decade will have a profound impact on our economy, society and natural ecosystems.

We created DEVX to bring together some of the most inspiring projects and people from across the country to have a practical dialogue around how we can impact future policy and local planning decisions.

Join us for the conversations and collaboration sessions. More on the programme and registration here.

An interactive online event exploring how new innovations in local politics can bring about sustainable changes to communities. 
The aim of this event is to deepen our understanding of the relationship between politics and local governance that can affect sustainable outcomes. The session will provide insights on how to reorientate local institutions towards environmental benefits and social wellbeing where these involve working with local councillors, planners or other community groups interested in positively shaping where they live. In particular, the event will explore 'Flatpack Democracy', a local political movement that seeks to 'break the mould' of party-politics through the election of groups of independent councillors.
