MMU host the RSA Manchester Network to engage Fellows through a climate change board game!
“[Perspectivity] could be the essence of how MMU could make sustainability relevant to all faculties and students.” – Head of Environmental Strategy, MMU
“An excellent tool to bring relevance to the sustainability agenda across all levels.” – RSA NW Chair
RSA Fellows from academia, arts and industry came together to participate in the Perspectivity game. The diversity of participants was reflected in the way the game played out with contrasting scores. Teams were tasked to grow their economies through a period of rapid change and uncertainty. Participants started with caution and as the rounds progressed they learned more about the effect of their actions and of others. The game provided a shared experience for a engaging conversation which looked at the challenge of finding shared purpose amongst diverse stakeholders, exploring how richer objectives beyond a profit motive support more sustainable growth and highlighted the important role that each individual’s values, assumptions and goals play in to the effectiveness of a system.
Perspectivity believes that inspired dialogue and self reflective learning are needed to unleash our collective creativity to face the challenges of our increasingly complex, diverse and interdependent world. We are keen to develop a network of trained facilitators in the North West of England to enable organisations to take a systemic approach to addressing their challenges.
