Six pathways to the Great Transition – what needs to be done
We need new strategies from civil society that think about ecological transition and polarisation together.
Our societies are drifting further apart. If current trends towards populist authoritarianism continue, they might set us back many years from tackling the ecological crises, years we don’t have.
Call for collaboration: Sensemaking dialogue and lab
We would love to know whether you’d be interested in getting involved in the next phase of our Lab and helping create a new space where we will model a non-dogmatic dialogue and develop the skills to make better sense of the world, individually and collectively. We will aim at reaching a higher-order perspective of the world that will allow us to model pathways that could actually successfully tackle the social and ecological crises. If you are at all intrigued, please get in touch by filling out this form.
Switching off the autopilot: An evolutionary toolbox for the Great Transition (new book)
This book is about the ecological crisis that threatens to collapse our entire civilisation. It is about the crisis of liberal democracy unfolding before our eyes. And it is about a new approach that aims to tackle both crises.
Systems Thinking Workbook: Practising the art of systems thinking in a complex world
This workbook provides a guided process to help enable and create conditions for practising systems thinking.
Systems thinking is a core skill in our current and evolving world. In order to deal with the complexity of our current world, we need to be able to understand the unpredictable, interconnected and complex nature of the world. But while there is much talk about the need to think and act systemically, we are often not sure how to do it.
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.

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.
