The Systems Sanctuary: Peer to Peer Learning for systems leaders

We joined forces with Tatiana Fraser of MetaLab to create The Systems Sanctuary- a platform for peer-to-peer communities of support for systems leaders. We have designed this program based on our own experience of co-leading systems change projects in the UK and Canada, as the support system we wished we'd had.  

It is designed for the growing number of pioneers experimenting with systemic solutions to systemic problems. Solutions that will benefit people and planet. 

What is The Systems Sanctuary? 

It is a 7 month, peer to peer mentoring program designed for systems leaders to: 

  • Share their unique challenges

With a group who understand what they're talking about. They receive practical advice, ideas and feedback on a specific challenge they are facing and learn from challenges and answers of others.   

  • Learn new tools and techniques 

Which can clarify and enrich their work; learn new tools, frameworks & techniques from peers who've actually used them. 

  • Build deep friendships

With like-minded peers and leave with a diverse network of systems change practitioners that will last long after the program has ended. Taking part feels inspiring, supportive and fun.   

In the Thick of it

Is our first program from The Systems Sanctuary. It launched in January 2018 and will conclude in August 2018. It was open to people who have been leading a systems change initiative for at least two years. We attracted a diverse, international cohort, who are working on different systems and challenges from public services, to poverty, to climate change, members of professions and beyond.
