About Us

We are a knowledge broker, a mission driven consulting practice, a research collaborative.  We are systems thinkers, facilitators, researchers and practitioners passionate about bridging knowledge and fostering learning and innovation across sectors to inform policy and practice.

We support institutions, organizations and change agents working to address the challenges of the 21st century.  We help organizations bridge knowledge across sectors and develop the learning systems necessary to deal with the challenges of today and build the adaptive capacity to address the challenges of tomorrow.

We partner with government, non-government, and social enterprise organizations to increase awareness of the value of adaptive, systemic and complexity-aware approaches to governance, environmental, urban sustainability and social change efforts.  We use the power of interdisciplinary collaboration and draw from systems thinking and complexity science to focus on the human element in complex systems.  We facilitate collaboration and experimentation in the application of adaptive frameworks, methods and tools and build capacity in the use of promising approaches.
