Upcoming Event: Agora for the Great Transition
To be politically successful, the Great Transition cannot take shape inside an ideological echo chamber in this increasingly polarised world. Instead, we need to come together as people and evolve culturally to create a flourishing future within the means of our planet — not the perfect utopia, but a utopia for realists.
Happy not-so-new year! Apologies that this newsletter has taken longer than usual. Among other things that kept us busy, we wanted to finalise our new website and show it to you — we hope you like the result.
In this newsletter we are asking you to participate in a survey and would like to introduce you to two of our keynote speakers at our upcoming event, Agora for the Great Transition.
Re.imagining Activism – A practical guide for the Great Transition
Based on the research collated and the ideas and experiences generated by the Smart CSOs Lab, our booklet Re.imagining Activism – A practical guide for the Great Transition is a practical tool for activists and social change leaders. It provides guidance and support to activists who want to make a meaningful contribution to this deeper change.
Theories of change and the vision of the Great Transition
Any organisation or activist network that designs a campaign or a movement strategy uses a theory of change, be it implicitly or explicitly. Theories of change are the ideas and hypotheses (theories) people and organisations have about how change happens. These theories are based on assumptions about reality, about what is at stake, and how change can be brought about.

In a world ruled by money, everything has a price. Even you. But it hasn’t always been this way, and it won’t be like this forever. The market / a money-oriented world isn’t a law of nature. It was created by humans. And humans can change it.
