Systems change is the emergence of a new pattern of organization or systems structure. (Birney, 2015) It is both a process and an outcome.
We are facing unprecedented economic, social, and environmental crises, and current reforms offer ineffective solutions.
Naomi Klein has called for a movement of change that “connects the dots” to address the root causes of all current crises facing people and planet.
Systems Change Alliance connects the dots between individuals, groups and organizations working in different fields to collaborate, educate, advocate and implement positive systemic change.
The three big dots? Environment, Society & Economy.
Intrinsic value of nature — Economic liberation and true sustainability will arise when people and nature are no longer viewed as mere commodities for sale in the marketplace.
Regeneration and protection — Regeneration of renewable resources and the vital protection and recycling of non-renewable resources.
Bioeconomics — Long term, economic systems change with a restructured economy where privatizing profits and socializing the environmental costs are no longer possible.
To work toward an integrated social system based on shared political and cultural values, economic democracy, decentralization and sustainability.
