Re-imagining our theories of change

What do we know about how system change can happen? What are our own theories of (system) change? How do they fit together? What is our own agency in this?



Re-imagining ourselves as activists

How can we transcend our current paradigms and think differently as activists? How can we ensure our work is both sustainable and meaningful?



Re-imagining our story

In what way are current frames / narratives supportive or unsupportive of the Great Transition? How can we deconstruct old narratives and which new ones can we create?


Re-imagining our organisations

What needs to change in our organisations to become fit for system change? How can we initiate change?


Re-imagining our campaigns

What needs to change in our campaigns to make them fit for the Great Transition. How can we start changing our strategies and campaigns?


A plenary debate: Is it a good activist strategy for the Great Transition to reject long established instititions?

Often we hear that the only way to create a sustainable and just future is to go back to the drawing board and start from scratch. So should we celebrate that many young networked grassroots activists fight institutions to make them superfluous? Does it follow that the EU should break up or that small nations are always preferable?
