The Sustainable Synergies Group: Introduction (2)

  1. 1. T H E S U S T A I N A B L E S Y N E R G I E S G R O U P UNDERSTANDING FOR LEARNING Version 2- September 29 2013 Frédéric de Hemptinne The Sustainable Synergies Group www.sustainable-synergies.eu fdh@sustainable-synergies.eu 29/09/2013 Sustainable Synergies – the concept 1 Contextual Intelligence on Environmental Stakes
  2. 2. T H E S U S T A I N A B L E S Y N E R G I E S G R O U P • Sustainability is a major driver for change and creates new paradigms every organization needs to adapt to. • Environmental issues are highly complex and spread over several scales of time and place. Uncertainty and emotions often prevail. • Environmental assets are a shared patrimony. Regulation must promote efficient uses as well the as fair access to the natural resources • Sustainability requires managers to work across traditional boundaries and lines of responsibilities. Integration means more than transferring obligations The starting point 29/09/2013 Sustainable Synergies – the concept 2
  3. 3. T H E S U S T A I N A B L E S Y N E R G I E S G R O U P Is there any “sustainable development” expertise who can guide the society to manage the transition? The answer is clearly “no” because: • the scope of topics to be addressed is too wide • the design of solutions is too much context depend • It is a matter of making societal choices. The way towards sustainable development is a collective learning process. Innovation is central but not sufficient to make it. Strategic policy-making must align societal goals and promote partnerships. The way forward 29/09/2013 Sustainable Synergies – the concept 3

  5. 5. T H E S U S T A I N A B L E S Y N E R G I E S G R O U P The Sustainable Synergies Group provides the research and analytical capacities needed by policy makers and enterprises in order to: • monitor the sustainability trends and weak signals arising from the context in which they operate • map the actors who are part of the same system, aggregate their views and interact actively with them through environmental planning processes. • Design and implement innovation projects which bring together the concerned stakeholders Our claim 29/09/2013 Sustainable Synergies – the concept 5
  6. 6. T H E S U S T A I N A B L E S Y N E R G I E S G R O U P We rely on an original combination of tools • to combine intelligence gathering and system thinking tools. • to implement an abductive cycle (modeling, hypothesis, research). • to capitalize knowledge through the design of archetypes and documents repository. • to use the Brussels scene for reverse lobbying and take advantage of the wealth of information brought up by stakeholders.
