Can Scaling an Idea Lead to Systems Change?Comments Off on Can Scaling an Idea Lead to Systems Change?
With ‘scale’ and ‘systems change’ grabbing headlines, it can be difficult to understand how the two interact or even where the overlap is between scaling an organisation’s impact and changing a system.
Our first ever Skoll Ecosystem event delved deeper into this idea as we heard from Skoll Awardees, experts, and practitioners who are effectively scaling, and looked at the systems that they were aiming to shift or have already shifted. The talk was then followed by a drinks reception held at Hertford College, Oxford.
