Model for Systemic Change

As a passionate systems thinker, I am so intrigued with how we can promote systemic change. While studying the works of Donella Meadows and other renown systems thinkers, and dreaming about ideal futures and how to get there, I dreamt up this model for systemic change.

The idea is that change can be promoted in a system when it is advanced on three levels: the institutional level, the grassroots level and the posterity level.

This model for systemic change is geared towards ideas that would require years to implement and many stakeholders to be involved. In a sense, this is effectively a model of transition design that could be beneficially employed to challenge phenomena such as social inertia as we progress towards ideal futures. Ideal is, of course, relative to those attempting to set the course for change.
