Strategies for Change: New Pathways from Knowing to Doing

Aula, Tongersestraat 53

Nora Wilhelm
Social innovator, systems entrepreneur and change maker

Nora Wilhelm describes the complex social and environmental challenges faced by humanity and will explore both established and emerging strategies to address them. Zooming in on the 'developed' countries of Europe, she questions the dominant linear approach to development and to solving complex problems. By applying a systemic lens, she suggests that to meet the challenges of our time, we need new forms of cooperation and a holistic way of thinking. We need to move away from fighting symptoms and chasing after technical solutions, and turn towards questioning our personal attitudes and assumptions, and our ability to work together to create a more sustainable and equitable future. She will share cutting-edge theory, practice and personal experience.
Following her lecture, she will be joined by researchers from MSI in a discussion with her and the audience
, led by Teun Dekker, professor of liberal arts and sciences education at University College Maastricht.

Nora Wilhelm is also a guest at The InnBetween on Tuesday 7 November, talking about Ecosystem Leadership. Places are limited for this meeting, so don’t forget to register. Take a look at our website for more information and to register, or go to www.innbetween.nl.
