With this expertise, we enable people, communities and society to systemically transform and create sustainable futures. It establishes long-lasting practices of transformation, to navigate contemporary complexities and to tackle societal challenges.
Nowadays, we observe a shift in the way the work of most companies and institutions is carried out. This shift is happening, due, for instance, to the digital transformation or the proliferation of AI, where relationships and agendas are becoming more and more interconnected and therefore complex. Actors that could work independently only a few years ago, today feel the need to connect and collaborate. Different agendas have to relate: social, economic, political agendas, as well as the civil society’s agenda; all of them have to also connect to the higher goal of environmental sustainability.
If we think about urban planning, for instance, and the possibility of having sensing and acting cities (so called smart cities), we immediately see how it is now necessary that all actors involved in this system are not working separately, but collaborate to produce transformations where all points of view are taken into account.
We are at the presence of systemic challenges that need to be acted upon with an approach that leads to Systemic Change. This is a relatively new way of working and all sectors are dedicated to increasing and boosting the innovation and transformation capacities, related to Systemic Change.
At RISE, systemic transformation is in our DNA.
With the expertise "Design for Transforming Practices", we explore how to operationalise societal transformation by maturing methodologies and developing tools that effectively increase the ability to operate Systemic Change. We enable people, communities and society to systemically transform and create sustainable futures.
Through Design for Transforming Practices, long-lasting practices of transformation are established, to navigate contemporary complexities and to tackle societal challenges.
