Collaborative impact :
Breaking down silos, creating connections, new possibilities and accelerating transformational change.
Communities and our Earth are facing many challenges and crises including the climate emergency, increasing concentration of wealth at the same time as increasing homelessness, housing affordability, poverty, food insecurity and community tensions.
InCollaboration recognises the interrelatedness of issues and opportunities. We connect ideas and issues for holistic and integrated responses, co-creating strategy as we do this.
Increasing numbers of people and organisations are working on solutions, some struggling without adequate support and/or unaware of other initiatives that could enhance their efforts. We facilitate relationships and connections across organisations, sectors and movements, connect the dots to reduce isolation, and bring forward additional resources, ideas, possibilities and synergies.
When strengthening ecosystems we recognise the strengths of co-operatives, not-for-profits, social enterprises, business and government.
Facilitating connections for resilient and inclusive communities
InCollaboration supports and facilitates connections for leaders who are working with their communities to increase community resilience. Community issues include increasing homelessness, housing affordability, mental health issues, change driven by emerging technologies, changing demographics, community conflict, environmental crises, and disruption to a number of our industries leading to employment uncertainty.
We support leaders to be inclusive of marginalised groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, culturally diverse groups, LGBTI groups, refugees and people with a disability.
Facilitating connections for economic fairness and the common good
InCollaboration connects leaders to initiatives locally and globally focused on greater cooperation and sharing, recognising everyone has a right to food, water, energy, housing and social care.
InCollaboration builds relationships and ecosystems to support or catalyse initiatives in any of the above sectors to address the common good.
One of our projects is Catalysing the Sydney Commons Lab, which is building an ecosystem to support community-led initiatives for the common good.
Facilitating connections for restoring and preserving environments and progressing regenerative ways of living
This involves moving towards renewable energies and models such as the circular economy that involve better use of resources and greater sharing and cooperation amongst community members. The climate crisis, rising sea levels, changing weather patterns, land degradation, water security, food security and species loss are major concerns and all impact on the sustainability of our communities. We need to progess much more rapidly to regenerative ways of living.
InCollaboration works with organisations and networks towards regenerating and sustainable enviroments.
