Achieving a more sustainable, safe and just future for all poses one of the biggest challenges and greatest opportunities of our time. By synthesizing the frontiers in resilience and sustainability science into a clear, coherent and hands-on approach for assessment, planning and action in social-ecological systems Wayfinder represents a new generation of resilience practice that will guide development practitioners, policymakers and other changemakers navigating towards better futures.
The Wayfinder process consists of five phases, which you work through iteratively. Starting by building a Coalition for change that can lead the process forward, you move on to create a shared understanding of the identity of your system, explore system dynamics, develop strategies for change, and implement these through a learning-by-doing approach that will enable you to collectively ‘learn your way forward’ towards a more sustainable future.
This platform will guide you on your Wayfinder journey. It provides you with an accessible summary of the frontier in resilience and sustainability science, together with set of illustrative cases, activity sheets and discussion guides that will be useful along the way. Below you will find an overview of the 5 phases, 15 modules and 40 work cards that forms the Wayfinder process.
