In this episode, we explore design. The organisations we speak to have different approaches, operate in different domains, and are at different points in their journey. But equally, they are all asking the same questions: How do you share the ability to solve a problem?
In this episode, we look at social purpose organisations that are experimenting or transitioning to new ways of working, and we find out what their journeys have taught them about sustainable inclusive systems.
In Season 2 of Sea Change, join us as we catch up with the curators of the Societal Platform approach and meet new organisations as they apply the principles of collaborative thinking and network effects to their work.
Welcome to Sea Change, a show about societal change in the digital age and how to make a bigger, faster and more inclusive impact in the world we live in.
In this first episode of Sea Change, “Another way of seeing”, we speak to a group of people who set audacious goals, like transforming how children learn, how people access capital, or healthcare – but they don’t believe in focusing only on solutions. They believe that societal problems can also be addressed through approaches that seek a sea change, a systemic change in the way we do things.
In episode two of Sea Change, “Not for the few, but for the many”, we hit the road to see what societal platform thinking looks like in real life, learn from experts about how grassroots organisations scale up, and then meet a group of doctors and researchers who have re-imagined how to bring medical expertise and skills to remote regions and communities. And finally we meet the people building the infrastructure necessary to make systemic advancements in education.
In our final episode, we try and understand what it takes to ensure that ‘collaboration’ happens in an equitable way, in a mutually beneficial way, and in a way that respects diversity. We also explore what it means for different groups – governments, markets, citizens and society to truly envision a sea change in the way they think and practice development. And finally, change requires specific types of investment and time, where will all this come from?
