Enabling Change

How do we make change happen? Come to this workshop to learn and develop tools for identifying effective actions for systems change at intersecting scales.

Bring your experiences of working to create a more sustainable world, share your understanding of how change happens, and co-create an analysis of the barriers and enablers towards a particular goal. We will identify actions which can be taken to weaken the barriers and strengthen the enablers. We will finally map these actions onto spheres of influence - to understand who has what power to make change happen.


Kat Wall is a local organiser for the New Economy Organisers Network (NEON Bristol). She is a freelance consultant, working currently on a project with the New Economics Foundation to map barriers to and enablers of change in the city of Bristol.
