ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW TNSI STRATEGIC DIRECTION & HIRING OF DIRECTOR OF FSSD DIFFUSION & NETWORK RELATIONS
Submitted by Kelly Hawke Baxter on September 8, 2012 - 9:03am.
The Natural Step International (TNSI) has two big pieces of news to share with you!
1. After several years of transition and review, TNSI is pleased to announce the emergence of a new strategic direction and the solid beginnings of a new strategic plan. These answer Göran Carstedt’s question, “What is The Natural Step good for?” and turn our gaze firmly outwards, re-focusing our attention on doing all we can to accelerate change in society towards sustainability. To this end, we plan to focus our efforts in the coming years in three main ways: first, by supporting the broadest possible dissemination of the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (FSSD), which is in the public domain and free for all to use; second, by partnering with others to support the co-creation of a vibrant, inclusive, networked community of practice around the FSSD (one that is open to all, and places FSSD practice in service of the world’s need at the center, rather than placing TNS at the center); and third, by growing TNS’s capacity so that we can act as more powerful change agents for the broader good. A living, evolving draft of the strategic plan can be viewed on The Natural Step website.
2. In line with this new direction, we are pleased to announce the hiring of Scott Perret (MSLS 2012) in the newly created role of Director of FSSD Diffusion and Network Relations. We are also actively seeking to fill a role designed to serve the third leg of our strategic plan: helping TNS build capacity internally, become a better, stronger organization, and grow into the future with new affiliates and new offices.
All of this is very new to us, as we begin prototyping and iterating solutions to help move our new agenda forward, and learn to work in new ways. We are currently seeking fresh ideas for business models and revenue sources that can support these operations. As companions in the movement towards a sustainable society and beyond, we welcome your feedback, questions, ideas and help, at any time!
