Although a young organization, Evolutionize It's collaborators bring decades of global experience to the design of participatory meeting and event formats that nurture collaborative learning, discussion and action.
In addition to working responsively with clients who hire us to design event strategies or facilitate participatory event sessions, we also convene dynamic events with groups of people around the world who are catalyzing change.
Examples of how we're evolutionizing events for social innovation include:
#we_b & #we_b2
In 2011, Evolutionize It curated an international working group, to collaborate in establishing a support institution for people who are catalyzing change around the world through collaborative methods.
#we_b was a 14 hour co-creation lab convened by the "Ci2i" working group in Brussels (January 2012), which brought the working group together from 4 continents to explore collaborative methods with 25 changemakers from around Europe.
#we_b2 was a focus group meeting of 15 peers (Brussels, June 2012), where the group convened face to face from around the world again, to present and receive feedback on a draft plan for establishing a "Collective Impact and Innovation Institute."
The Evolutionize It led "ci2i group" has continued to evolutionize the concept into Ci2iglobal.com - the Co-creative Impact and Innovation Institute, which will begin documenting a global body of knowledge about co-creatiing impact by hosting a Learn/Share Lab for Co-creative Impact and Innovation in Chiang Mai, Thailand, 7-8 February 2014.

In 2010, what has since become the Womanity Foundation hosted a 3 day Workshop for Senior WomenChangeMakers in Geneva, in order to inform their future programs to support social entrepreneurs whose innovations empower women. Evolutionize It designed and led the workshop, which the mapped career paths of 8 social entrepreneurs whose initiatives had collectively empowered more than 10 million people worldwide.
