The role of values in transformational change


I’m helping organise a round table discussion with Tom Crompton at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation on 25th June:

The role of values in transformational change: Implications for action on climate change, resilience and sustainability

How can we achieve the transformational change many see as essential to solve some of our time’s knotty issues?
What is the role of our values in creating this change?
Can we use a values framework to initiate and consolidate transformational change?

These are some of the questions we are inviting you to discuss with a group of practitioners also interested in transformational change in relation to climate change, resilience and sustainability.

This round table will be introduced by Tom Crompton, author of Common Cause. He will challenge the group to create an ongoing dialogue about values as the basis for transformational change, beyond the role of communication campaigns.
