The world is increasingly confronted with interconnected socio-environmental issues that span knowledge cultures, disciplines and value systems. While the issues are interconnected, our experiences and struggles are also interlinked and none is independent of the other. The challenges faced in this complex and uncertain world is to accept that, as soon as we appear to have met a challenge, things will have changed and the horizon will have shifted once again. In this context, it is easy to either give up or to persist with solutions that prove to be part of the problem.
We believe that by developing our capacity to work with each other and to adapt, problems can be reframed and solutions discovered that will advance social equity while improving the quality of our environments. Our beliefs, values, attitudes, customs, institutions and social relations shape the way we perceive the world and how we can interact with it.
We support individuals, communities, specialists and organisations in understanding the complex ecosystems in which we live. Our function is to create the environments conducive for participants to reframe issues, open to multiple ways of thinking and to use the imagination to be receptive to new ideas and new directions.
