Society in transition: a thousand and one challenges
The pandemic has hit us hard and is leaving its mark. Democracies are under pressure, and inequality is on the rise. Digitalisation is presenting us with both new opportunities and challenges. The climate, biodiversity, ecosystems, demographic evolution, food security, transport, the circular economy, healthcare, geopolitical power shifts and conflicts: the list of topics we need to keep an eye on is endless. Scientific insights and technological developments are producing fresh issues as well as fresh answers.
Transition management is a paradox. Uncertainties cannot be overcome. We need to learn to deal with them, stay flexible and be ready to adjust our plans; if not, we’ll end up letting opportunities slip
through our fingers.
How can your organization take up a role in this? Are you a public sector entity, a civil society organisation, a university, a healthcare institution, a manufacturing business, a financial institution or a retail company?
In this mini-guide we’ll run you through seven levers we’ve identified based on our experience of working with all of these types of businesses in the social arena. Seven levers you can use to turn transition into a positive for your organisation. And most importantly, seven levers that enable your organisation to deliver a significant social contribution.
