The world is an increasingly complex and small place, with so many issues, causes, themes, trends and cultures interconnecting. But we are not always well prepared or educated to think in a connected way about vital local or global issues. It requires in shift in how we think about issues, and new tools and skills for articulating and understanding the connections. We’ll learn techniques including Issue Mapping, Issue Analysis, Shifting Perpectives and Strategic Intervention. This experiential, fun, fast-paced, hands-on 90 minute workshop will enable you to see issues in a more connected way, ask the right questions, uncover the key causes and effects, and plan effective next steps and actions that make a difference.
