Impact Culture

 

WHOEVER YOU MAY B... YOUR IMPACT MATTERS: BUILDING A SCOTTISH IMPACT CULTURE



We believe real, lasting, transformation of our economic system requires deeper introspection into the worldview, mindset and values which underlie the system that we are trying to change.

 

Scotland CAN B's Impact Culture offerings create the spaces and opportunities for a wide range of actors in the Scottish business ecosystem to come together, taking time for reflection and conversation, in order to cultivate a truly systemic approach to change.

 

We are committed to working collaboratively and systemically to cultivate greater coherence of language, tools and visions for using business as a force for good, and building a impactful Wellbeing Economy in Scotland. This approach is supported by our core & guiding value of interdependence. The outcomes of this Impact Culture work are fed directly into the materials for our Impact Trainings, which in turn contributes towards accelerating and deepening our collective positive impact for the benefit of all.

Coming up: Impact Leaders Co-Design Sprint

We host co-design sprints with Impact Leaders from across the Scottish entrepreneurial community and beyond to engage the collective intelligence of the ecosystem towards refining and deepening our Impact Trainings materials. Our intention in taking this inclusive, systemic approach is to be able to integrate the most comprehensive and cutting-edge insights, resources and expertise into Scotland CAN B's training resources for the collective benefit of all.

Place-based Business Impact Ambassadors

The Scotland CAN B team have shared their insights with a range of global audiences; from curious polititians inspired to follow Scotland's lead in leveraging business as a force for good on a national scale, to grassroots communities of systems thinkers keen to share best practices in engaging cross-sector audiences. We are proud to share all of our learnings with an open-source ethos, so that other place-based initiatives may benefit and learn from our journey, as we work interdependently towards building an environmentally restorative, socially just, and economically inclusive future for all.
