Do you work to eliminate one of our community’s most complex problems – like poverty, homelessness, addiction, climate change? Do you feel like we are good at easing today’s symptoms, but the overall problem never gets any better?

We've seen 13 teams from our region bring fresh vision to complex issues contributing to our hunger, addiction, homelessness and more. They completed a world-wide online course that lays out a clear path to frame these issues in a new way, by illuminating and investigating all of the contributing factors - both expected and unexpected. The approach is called systems practice. Teams work together to see complex systems in a new way, find patterns, and identify places in the system where small changes might make lasting change.
