Most activists and social change leaders today would argue that a sustainable future will only be possible by making profound changes to our lives and our political and economic systems. But for many activists terms like system change, Great Transition, paradigm shift are too big, too utopian or too abstract and very difficult to be broken down into tangible strategies and steps. If it is already so difficult to achieve our small little steps – and often we don’t achieve them – what sense does it make to work towards utopia? The Smart CSOs Lab is a space where activists and change agents from civil society come together as a community of practice to learn how to make change in the way civil society thinks, acts and operates. The ultimate aim is to give large-scale impulses for an activism that works effectively towards systemic change. More information is available here.
