Influencing joined-up or wicked challenges together

Joined-Up is a program created especially to meet the needs of Adaptation Practitioners.

Joined-Up can help with:
  • Communication – the complexity of the climate challenge internally and externally
  • Awareness – the urgency that is required
  • Mindset – changing the minds that matter
  • Momentum – stopping processes from stalling
  • Engagement – gathering the people juggling multiple priorities

As leaders, it is crucial to be aware of this influence.

You can learn more about:
  • Complex adaptive systems (living systems)
  • Facilitating adaptive change
  • Leading people the experience more meaningful lives
  • How to become more strategic, politically savvy, and effective

Real transformative change is counter-cultural in its nature – it requires boldness. Joined-Up gathers people to develop our regenerative leadership capability and confidence together. We don’t have time for a long game. Winning slowly is the same as losing when it comes to the climate and ecological emergency.
