 What is systems change? 

Systems Change is an intentional (or unintentional) process to alter the status quo and bring about lasting change by altering the underlying structures and supporting mechanisms which make the system operate in a particular way. It focuses on changes in people, organisations, policies, processes, cultures, beliefs and environments.

The concepts and language may be new to some but acting systemically is something many in the social sector already do.

There is no single, correct way to do systems change.
