To introduce this meeting our co-founder Antony Upward stated:

This month we have as a speaker Peter Jones (@Redesign) a respected practitioner and academic author, researcher and systemic design practitioner.  Peter is based at the OCAD University's Strategic Innovation Lab, the academic host of this group.  Peter is also part of this groups Flourishing Business Innovation Toolkit project's core team.  Learn more about Peter's work via Design Dialogues and the 5th Relating Systems Thinking and Design Symposium to be held in Toronto this fall #RSD5.

To introduce his talk Peter said:

"My topic is the methods and processes for designing the conditions for flourishing in, for and across social systems. The developmental goal of the Strongly Sustainable Business Model Group and the Flourishing Enterprise Canvas has been to motivate business leaders and to shift their values toward business models that generate net positive ecological and social outcomes. However, we have not yet envisioned, clearly or well enough, the design methods and consultative approaches that might sustain flourishing within an organization – or an institution or city for that matter – committed to such a transition. I will share the evolution of the FBC with the Flourishing Societies model and canvas, some lessons learned from nearly a year of workshops, and the design and consultative modes we might develop and weave into our practices to sustain these models over the long run."
