Systems Change Learning Series

The Systems Change Learning Series aims to boost, support and enhance learning for Catalyst 2030 members.

The Systems Change Learning (SCL) Series focuses on amplifying the systems change movement by stimulating an ongoing learning process from and for social innovators in the Catalyst 2030 network and beyond. The team helps members achieve systems level impact by nurturing new ideas, methods and techniques for systems change work. It does this in an ongoing collaborative process of experience and building the sector that influences social entrepreneurship and innovation practice, education and public policy.

The series offers members and their colleagues the opportunity to participate in multiple speaker series bundles. Each series covers a specific thematic focus that consists of two to four part speaker sessions. These are offered in collaboration with a strategic Catalyst 2030 partner, who shares their knowledge of the theme with social entrepreneurs and local leaders closest to the problem also share their learnings.

Core Objectives

  • Provide members with a systematic and organised way to increase their learning of practical skills for social entrepreneurs. This includes skills and learnings from building a board, to funding a social venture, to complex topics like systems change.
  • Create an avenue for collaborative learning opportunities, where Catalyst 2030 members and partners are encouraged to share their own learnings as well as learn from and collaborate with each other.
  • Encourage members to engage in sustained learning, beyond attending one-off sessions, by organising content in a thematic and structured way.
