Systems Change Design
from HATCH Global Living Room with impact expert John Kania
Groups and individuals who visit 1440 experience time differently, exploring important global issues that matter to the greater good while surrounded by mountain air and towering ancient redwoods. 1440 Multiversity meticulously curates experiences that connect people while allowing them to discover new approaches for how to live, lead, love, work, and wonder.
The HATCH Global Living Room is converting curated conversations to collaborations and action. It is times like these that remind us why we build communities and networks. The Covid Pandemic, and social distancing have inspired innovators from across the globe to reinvent digital spaces and how we engage with them. HATCH is excited to create a space where the inspired can come together to connect, collaborate, and work towards accelerating solutions for good.
Join Hatch Global living room for a discussion with John Kania where he will present and lead a discussion around the Six Conditions of Systems Change, Systemic Solutions Initiatives, and ways to SHIFT the conditions that hold a problem in place. Systems change addresses the root causes of social problems. Often intractable and embedded in networks of cause and effect. It is a process designed to fundamentally alter the structures that cause the system to behave in a certain way.
The weekly Global Living Room sessions are a medley of diverse insights by astronauts, scientists, technologists, CEOs, artists, poets, and extraordinary humans from multiple countries around the world.
It’s a time of collective sense-making, working to understand inflection points, reframe challenges, and identify opportunities to create real solutions.
