School of System Change

We know that growing a global community of change agents is our best chance to accelerate a transition to a sustainable future. Want to know more?

Join the School of System Change

The School has three core learning offerings depending on the level of system change practice in your work. The School’s curriculum is underpinned by the five core capabilities needed for systems change.


Basecamp is our flagship six-month learning journey to help change leaders navigate complex challenges, map and diagnose systems and engage others with far-reaching change processes. It is designed for individuals from business, non-profits, public sector organisations and philanthropy who are working on a specific sustainability challenge. 

Basecamp gives you an opportunity to apply your learning to your own work and try new frameworks and models in a supportive environment. The course is usually delivered through a combination of in-person and online sessions, with a mixture of small group activities, independent reflection and one-to-one coaching. 

In each Basecamp cohort we aim for a group of 20-25 participants representing a wide range of sectors, contexts, and expertise. Participants are normally selected through an application and interview process.

Upcoming Basecamp programmes:

  • Basecamp Americas Summer 2021 - a fully online learning experience kicking off in June 2021. Applications are open to changemakers from all sectors from the Americas. Sessions are planned around between US Eastern and Pacific time zones, but you can participate from anywhere! Apply by 21st April 2021

  • Basecamp Europe Autumn 2021 - a learning experience in partnership with DRIFT Transitions Academy kicking off in October 2021. Applications will be open from May 2021 to changemakers from all sectors who are looking to grow their impact. Sessions are planned around European time zones, but you can participate from anywhere!
