Societal Platforms are manifestations of Societal Thinking, a systemic approach, a set of values and specific design principles, to reimagine social problems, redesign core interactions between key actors of society and induce exponential social change.
Societal Thinking enables:
- Radical Inclusion
- Diverse Solutions
- Enhanced Ability
Who We Are
We are an emerging community of change leaders, thinkers, mentors, funders and enablers who share an audacious vision: create exponential and sustainable social change.
We help change leaders around the world, reimagine and solve social problems in ways that can deliver impact at scale.
How do we enable exponential change, together?
Answers from our ecosystems
We see many answers emerging in our ecosystem. Some answers led to reframing of problems in a way that inspires more action, some led to creation and reuse of open source building blocks that improved efficiency and some led to impact at scale through Societal Platforms. We curated all our learnings into open source knowledge that is freely available to consume and build upon (under CCBY SA 4.0 license).
Over the next 5 years, we want to deeply focus on 5 areas and 5 geographies and bring
together change leader, thinkers, and enablers
to create Impact at Scale. These are:
“Societal Thinking presents an opportunity to change the way we tackle social problems - to design for more inclusion, more access, more co-creation and more resilience.”
"As we design for a better world that is meaningful, sustainable and collaborative, Societal Thinking can be a critical way to move ahead."
“Co-Impact is delighted to be working deeply with the Societal Platform team in our efforts to solve societal challenges at scale.”
“Societal Platform is about the creative use of technology to get more bang for the buck when tackling societal issues.”
"Societal platforms are audacious endeavours that converge the power of networks, open innovation and shared digital infrastructure to give voice and agency to every individual."
"Thoughtfully developed digital public infrastructure, imagined as Societal Platforms, can form the backbone for an inclusive, resilient and thriving society."
