Co-designing a purposeful retreat.
"How might we fund systems change better?" This was the starting point for a retreat convened by SiX (Social Innovation Exchange) and SiG (Social Innovation Generation) on the beautiful island of Wasan near Toronto in September.
We helped to design and facilitate the 5 day retreat which was designed to support pioneering funders of systems change to learn more about what's working and build deeply connected community.
- What is systems change?
- Shared stories from the field
- Shared pain points for practitioners and funders
- Looked at the current state of the field of systems change
- And finished with collective model building around what we could create together

It was a wonderful experience that is continuing to nourish our thoughts and work.
