THE cCHANGE APPROACH: 

The three spheres of transformation

 

Climate change is considered by many to be the greatest challenge to humanity. How do we meet this challenge? How do we transform ourselves, our communities, and our systems at the rate and scale that is called for by current understandings of the science of climate change? Where do we begin? The answer to these questions lies in how we “see” change.

 

cCHANGE brings together a large body of knowledge on both climate change and transformation, helping individuals and organizations to identify the patterns and possibilities for contributing to the types of responses that are called for in a changing climate.  cCHANGE helps individuals and groups to see climate change from new perspectives.

 

 

Collaborative change

cCHANGE connects people with the knowledge and tools to enhance leadership capacity and collaborative power. New understandings of the relationship between individuals and collectives show that the quality of collaboration is key. When diverse skills and passions are brought together in pursuit of a common goal, collaboration can generate amazing results.

Creative change

cCHANGE focuses on the power of imagination and creation, bringing together the best of art and science to facilitate new types of responses to climate change. Art has the potential to reveal patterns and connections within complex systems. This makes it possible to discover new perspectives and ways of thinking and being that can turn problems into creative solutions. 

Conscious change

cCHANGE works with  individuals and groups to enhance their capacity to eliminate blind spots and assumptions that can be barriers to successful transformation. Transformation can come about simply by viewing problems and solutions differently. Understanding the role of consciousness in change processes is a powerful leverage point for systems change.
