agents of change – UBIS geneve

learning community, for positive change in organisations

A growing number of individuals experience an emerging need of change in the way they engage and participate in their communities, workplaces and society as whole. Incremental tension in professional roles, perceived geopolitical threats, concerns about the future living conditions through climate change are just a few driving symptoms to mention, leading to a loss of trust in the systems we are subject to.

In order to enable a positive change in society, all stakeholder groups and organizations are needed in a participatory process of redesign and alignment to achieve the future we need and want. Eventually, the success of effective change boils down to the capacity of each individual within the society.

As members of a global, collaborative society we would like to invite you to participate in Agents of change: with 8 session per year, we travel through a program focussed on people who wish to make a positive impact on their community. Be it the own family, neighborhood, workplace, local community or society as a whole.
