How we engage
How we engage
Our engagement model is based on an iterative social learning cycle, with a strong scientific foundation of robust systems thinking methodologies, spanning almost three decades of proven real-world applications in various contexts. Their evolution informed by practice will continue as we work with our partners, with our shared experience to face many of the complex challenges of our time. Hover over the various sections to explore an example how we engage with private and public sector organisations or institutions, confronted with complex social or environmental issue. Our context section provides a more in-depth perspective on the different engagement contexts.
Education for Sustainable Development is an overarching theme across all contexts, and we place particular emphasis at Peripeteia to provide broad, equal access to learning pathways, which build the capacity for systems thinking and action across our society. Partnering with the private or public education sector is thus fundamental to our work.
To juggle in the literal sense needs practice, where we as novice juggler have to manage to complex relationship between seeing, feeling, acting and moving to keep the balls up in the air. Our mental state is as important as our senses, emotions and connection to the environment. If one is neglected our practice causes unintended consequences, the balls drop, and we have to start all over again. It gets even more challenging for us if our environment is subject to sudden changes, where we need to juggle on uncommon ground, a new context, or we juggle with other people together, requiring us to understand and learn first about their practice, before we can successfully perform a group juggling. Hover over the pictures to explore how we relate the “juggling” to systems thinking in action.
