The UnSchool has the same feeling – getting to know a lot of people from different backgrounds – and it's exciting to learn new subjects: systems thinking, sustainability and most importantly, change. It shaped who I am now!”

AMPLIFIED OUT INTO THE WORLD

GET YOUR PROJECT ACTIVATED AND

This knowledge session is all about implementing, activating, and amplifying ideas out into the world. Ideas stuck in your head are pointless for changing the world. 

In this final stage, we need to start to activate our interventions and set up the feedback loops that will give us the resilience to make our future interventions even more impactful! 

In this class, we will explore ways of getting your ideas out into the the world, from the practical steps of project planning through to the more conceptual frameworks that help to contextualize the concepts of activation. 

We will consider how they may evolve and develop contingency plans that allow for flexible, rapid adaptation, and you will establish benchmarks and iterative design changes to build stronger, more robust outcomes. 

 We look into ways that projects respond to dynamically evolving systems so that we can get them activated and amplified out into the dynamic evolving systems at play. This session will help you define and build the resilience and capacity you need to be an activated changemaking with tangible, real-world solutions with positive effects!
