Now What?!

System Shifting Networks

October 14 - November 22, 2019

The concept of "system shifting" networks has been articulated by network weaving maven June Holley in a series of posts at www.networkweaver.com.  Many of the Now What?! Partners are engaged in this approach to change.  

 

What patterns, processes, and tools can we identify to support the growth and effectiveness of these networks?

MENDING THE HOOP OF LIFE:

A DEEP DIVE INTO DIVERSITY AND THE CLIMATE CRISIS MOVEMENT

 

What can we as people committed to global unity and correcting the errors of ignorance and denial that got us to this place of potential climate disaster, do to create inclusivity and why are we not doing those things?

 

Because I am committed to Unprecedented Leadership I cannot imagine leaders who do not address this issue. As someone who aspires to be an Unprecedented Leader, I would like to launch a Deep Dive with others to authentically, intelligently, lovingly and wholeheartedly excavate this multi-layered fragmentation that has shredded the hoop of life.

 

Beyond this investigation I would like to consider actions that make a difference and meet with people willing to implement such actions.

TRCC Collaborative Funding Strategies 2020:

Strengthening our Impact and participatory processes

Grant applicants are the majority voice at the decision-making table in the collaborative funding program hosted by the Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory and co-sponsored by the Threshold Foundation and other aligned funders. In this dialogue, we’ll share an overview of TRCC's participatory Council design and think together about the Council's funding process and priorities for 2020. We’ll review the grant criteria and look at what our Kumu mapping tells us about our impact. 

 

Question(s)

  • How do we define and prioritize work across geographic scale, strategy, stakeholders, and project/organization stage? 

  • How can we improve our nomination/review/funding process and criteria?

Calls scheduled for Oct 23 and 28
