enabling exponential social change,
Social problems are large, complex and tend to grow much faster than our individual ability to solve them. Societal Thinking provides a set of values and design principles to reimagine and redesign the core interactions between key actors of society in a way that induces exponential change.
Just as a thousand mice don’t make an elephant, replicating small solutions won’t solve a large problem at scale. For things to work at scale, they need to be designed such that problems get solved – not because of one idea or one ideator, but because it’s easy for diverse actors to come together to solve.
Societal Thinking can help design such systems.

Societal Thinking pushes social entrepreneurs to go beyond their personal experience to develop a systemic view of the problem and design solutions that work at scale. it helps Social entrepreneurs move from thinking "how do I scale up my solution" to "how do I enable everyone in the eco-system to solve better."
The strength of a Societal Platform is that any country can co-create and use the ECHO model to meet their own priorities by adapting it to their unique context.
As a leader, Societal Thinking gives me clarity. It gives a sense of urgency in solving problems exponentially, distributing the ability to solve and having stakeholders across government, civil society and markets together.
In Societal Thinking, we have the three principal ingredients of success: scale, diversity and the ability to solve that isn’t dependent on an individual or a small group of people.
