Catalysts for collective action

Wasafiri, means “travellers” in Swahili, and was inspired by the phrase, “Traveller, there is no path: we make the path as we walk together.” This simple statement evokes the spirit of how we work; as trusted adviser, collaborator and systems-change entrepreneur, relentlessly driven toward transformative action. Our expertise lies in generating new insight, ideas and partnerships to drive collective action on complex problems

Systemcraft Institute

Systemcraft is Wasafiri’s approach to creating transformational change. It’s been forged from our experience on the front lines of some of the world’s toughest problems and is grounded in a robust body of research and theory.

Systemcraft offers a practical framework for creating system-level change in the face of big, messy and seemingly intractable problems.

As well as using Systemcraft in our consultancy work, we also share it with leaders and practitioners working to create a more equitable, sustainable and peaceful world.
