About the School of System Change

The School has been initiated and nurtured by Forum for the Future, with the support of multiple partners.

We have the ambition to serve the emerging field of systems change, as a vehicle for connecting and amplifying spheres of learning and practice, and as a case study of an initiative grown explicitly as a system change endeavour. To do this we have used a methodological framework developed by Anna Birney, Director of the School and author of Cultivating System Change: A Practitioner’s Companion (2014). This framework suggests key capabilities for bringing about system change for a sustainable future can be divided into five core areas (read more here on our blog) which underpin our curriculum and our everyday practice.

We are a small team within Forum for the Future, headed up by Laura and Anna, working collaboratively with a growing community of people and organisations in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
