Ayni – Communities of Systems Change
A Practical Application of Collaborative Systems Change
Keywords:systems change, collaborative systems change, systems innovation, collective impact, co-creation, Latin America
To address some of today’s most pressing problems, we must organize differently. Transformational change now begs that we collaborate with others to make sense of our interconnected, complex problems and envision new solutions that might not be feasible if we act individually. Systems thinking is a framework that can help us understand complex problems. ‘Ayni – Communities of Systems Change’ is an initiative that convenes leaders of change to develop their system leadership and advance systemic changes in collaboration with others. The initiative is currently supporting 80 teams of social entrepreneurs and local government leaders on co-creating systems change solutions. As these teams apply systems thinking to specific problems in their cities, they also engage a broader group of actors to build solutions grounded in diverse perspectives and collective change-making.
