Catalysts for Change Workshop

April 2012

A workshop with a difference. On Friday 13 April 2012, the SA Node of the Millennium Project, hosted by die Department of Science and Technology, introduced a group of role players to the Catalysts for Change toolkit. This toolkit was developed by the Rockefeller Foundation in association with their Searchlight Foundation to find paths out of poverty.

Lead by Dr. Bob Day, the workshop was aimed at assessing the toolkit and participants chose issues that interest them from a special map, developed as part of this toolkit. By focusing on action zones and signals highlighted in the map, the toolkit then stimulates new ways of assessing the challenges – and developing inventive ways of addressing them.

While the idea was not to find solutions to the chosen problems, the interesting and new insights the participants arrived at, might just lead to further action. For more on the map and toolkit, visit
