Structures for Living


In a nutshell: Take a topic you're passionate about, that fascinates you or that the world needs to understand better. Find a group of people with experience in the area, interview them cleanly and uncover their concerns, ideas and interests. Take these and form a pilot set of themes that may be useful to others. Test them, hone them and turn them into a 6-week programme for a group of interested human beings to work out new structures for living.

“Structures for Living” is an idea that has grown out of the process that Caitlin has used for developing Systemic Modelling projects over the years. We have been busy using this process to create a new ‘Structures for Living” brand (new website to follow) and are offering several programmes which will each run online over 6 weeks for 90 minutes a week:

Each programme has been designed and will be delivered by teams who are highly skilled in Systemic Modelling and/or have a special expertise in the topic. Participants will be facilitated to discover their own models for how they currently think about the theme, exploring a different aspect each week, with space for the group to develop new ideas of significance for them. We expect participants to learn about themselves, to gain from being part of a group where in-depth exploration is happening and to leave with new ideas, new actions and a new network of like-minded people.

As we go along, we'll be developing further programmes, so if you're interested in a topic that's not yet featured, do let us know.
