Systemic change A system is a set of connected things that operate together. The world is made up of systems. There are a multitude of connections and interactions between many different components of these systems, which means a change in one system can have great consequences in others. Climate change operates in so many complex systems that it calls for a significant difference in how we design and take actions. This is why we need systemic change, and to implement changes simultaneously in multiple components of a system to reach all or most parts of a system. Systems innovation with EIT Climate-KIC EIT Climate-KIC has a way of working that is collaborative, mission-led and focused on creating a connected set (or portfolio) of interventions or actions with the aim to unlock change at scale. We call this systems innovation. The aim of these method and toolkits is to support ‘challenge owners’ like Clyde Rebuilt in their efforts to tackle climate change by transforming whole systems. With systems innovation, a set of integrated and coordinated interventions happen simultaneously in the economic, political and social systems and along whole value chains.
