Catalysing Social Impact is a forum to solve complex societal problems. Many societal problems are either slow to change or have solutions that have not gone to scale. We believe solutions can be found if problems are not narrowly framed, boxed into sectoral thinking and limited by the known.
A mix of communities and professionals, the young and experienced, and a multi-disciplinary team of doers, thinkers and investors should dive deep and #ShapeTheFuture. The forum uses a Solution Circle approach, which is inspired by methods like Socrates Circle, Community of Practise, Hackathon and Design Thinking. Solution Circles is a self-organised group of people who hold a common interest, are committed to collective learning, collaboration, advancing knowledge and practice.
The results of the forum will be solutions in practice. This will be achieved through pilot, experiment, framework, whitepaper, etc., as decided by the Solution Circles. All outputs will be widely available through Creative Commons.
Behaviour Change is explained by diverse disciplines, theories, models and frameworks. It is practiced across sectors, such as marketing, advertisement and social programmes. How can theories and experiences combine to understand and look for designs that address problems such as improving access to ANC services, improving hand washing practices among health care practitioners and understanding the changing norms of sexuality to prevent early marriage or teen pregnancies.
