The problems we face today, such as climate change, inequality and ageing populations cannot be fixed by one department alone.
They require a systems approach. This is a game for policymakers to explore how taking a systemic approach can unlock intractable issues in their policy areas.
Playing “Systemic” will enable you to:
- Learn about some foundational systems change frameworks, as well as some of the latest thinking on systems change for people working on social policy issues;
- Better understand the current rules of the game in your policy area - including purpose, how resources flow, which actors hold power, relationships between stakeholders;
- Come up with a shared goal which speaks to the challenges across your systems;
- Test what kind of changes you could make in your policy area, in a safe, simulated environment - providing a way for you to test your thinking with no real-life consequences.
