Is this for me?

We are looking for inspired and intrepid individuals from business, not-for-profits, public sector organisations and other enablers of change to form a strong cohort of twenty participants.

 The network you plug into (participants, workshop facilitators and the organizers) is incredible!  Gina LaMotte, Ecorise

What will I learn?

Basecamp will help you navigate five core capabilities for system change, introducing you to a variety of tools and methods to lead ambitious initiatives and engage others. You will learn with a dozen high-level system change thinkers and practitioners pioneering this field across the world.

Many of the tools introduced have been great organizing tools even if we take them out of the framework of "systems change" so I have been able to apply my learnings to my work in many ways.  Eddie Junsay, Power Shift Network

This is an applied learning programme, where you will first have the opportunity to try out new skills on a complex Fieldwork project we source with our partners, and then embed new practices in your own work.

 It was really unique to acquire skills to enable change and build consensus, not technical sustainability knowledge which goes out of date.  Elizabeth Howarth, Transport for London
