Why Learning about Systems Change?

 

Creating a sustainable food and agricultural system is one of the most critical challenges that we face. The world needs to embark on a major transition to build a sustainable future. ​We have the technical capacity and the technology to do so, but we are lacking the collaborative mindset and set of values required for this transformation. ​To create a common future for humanity and the living planet, we must embrace the complexity of pursuing systemic changes, and move beyond a focus on the 'what' of change and get better at the 'how' of change.  

The paradox is that systemic change involves transformation ‘en masse’, but within that mass population individual practitioners must be equipped with the skills and approaches that will enable them to change as individuals in support of the wider change. 

 

About

 

The Good Growth Conference is an immersive learning experience celebrated every two years which brings policymakers, producers, local communities, companies, development practitioners and conservationists to the frontiers of agriculture and deforestation.

The 2021 edition of the Good Growth Conference, which happened virtually, took over a hundred carefully selected changemakers on a unique learning journey to build skills, connect and learn together through a select and customized training programme from top-tier organizations to create systems change for sustainable commodity supply chains. 
 
Co-designed and convened by the Good Growth Partnership with funding from the Global Environment Facility and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic affairs to inspire new understandings and foster meaningful global connections, this one of a kind gathering equips delegates with the network and tools needed to influence the way we produce, finance and demand agricultural commodities.

The 2019 edition was held in Lima and the Peruvian Amazon.
