Mapping the Eco-System: Catalyst Lab Module 3.2


  • Wirkstatt Auboden Auboden Brunnadern, SG, 9125 Switzerland (map)

Module III.II

Guiding Question:

“How can we tackle the underlying dynamics and root causes that are at play and shift our perceptions and assumptions of the systems we are part of?”


What will happen:
This module is focusing on and supporting you in mapping your own eco-system to understand the leverage points for transformation, in particular by:

  • widening our individual and collective capacities for different ways of knowing, using Systems Thinking and Systems Sensing approaches, including Body Work and Systemic Constellation

  • seeking out blind spots and marginalized edges of the system you are addressing, you are part of and you are working in

  • understanding the underlying dynamics and dynamic forces of a given system and how to make them explicit to create greater coherence

  • identifying the different actors in the field and mapping out their relations

  • sensing the potent leverage points for societal transformation and the elements of caution in it

  • creating an awareness for the system to see, sense and shift itself
