Flyer for a webinar taking place at 1PM ET on April 30, 2024. The title is FLOWER: Visualizing Solutions for Equity, Climate, and Health. The flyer has a FLOWER image, a blue background, and a white Multisolving Institute logo.

Webinar – FLOWER: Visualizing Solutions for Equity, Climate, and Health

This interactive webinar introduces FLOWER, which stands for Framework for Long-term, Whole-system, Equity-based Reflection. In the webinar recording Join us to network alongside people with similar interests, learn about FLOWER and the ways it can support your work, and gain insights about the potential multisolving holds to create systems change.

We especially encourage people working across multiple silos in communities, non-profits, businesses, or government to use FLOWER. This includes community leaders, teachers, and systems thinkers. However, the webinar is open to all interested in utilizing the tool.

More about FLOWER:  

FLOWER  is a user-friendly community engagement tool designed to spark conversation and action. FLOWER explores co-benefits supporting health, equity, and climate solutions that a project or investment can create in communities. It has now been adapted into an interactive web-based app.

That opened a new front of research at Climate Interactive: what else would improve around the world if countries truly transitioned away from fossil fuels? From improvements in air quality to energy security we documented many co-benefits of climate action, and incorporated some of them into Climate Interactive’s well known computer simulation, En-ROADS.

But, the multiple benefits of actions to protect the climate remain mostly theoretical without ways of overcoming the obstacles to multisolving. That’s why, from the beginning of our work we have collaborated with others to understand the bright spots of multisolving around the world and to pilot multisolving approaches. First in Milwaukee in partnership with the Milwuakee Metropolitan Sewerage District and then in Atlanta, with Partnership for Southern Equity, we began to see what was possible by bringing the different parts of a system together in pursuit of actions and investments that lifted up many goals at once.

From this action research, along with a series of case studies of multisolving projects, we began to see attitudes and approaches that are in common across a wide diversity of multisolving projects, a topic we wrote about in Stanford Social Innovation Review.

Then came 2020. Pandemic. Escalating climate change impacts. Dire warnings about biodiversity loss. And more and more folks connecting the dots between each of these issues and structural inequity. Invitations to write, speak, and teach about multisolving came fast and furious and with it the possibility that what we’ve learned from multisolving bright spots could help support leaders around the world to respond to crises with multisolving. That spark led to the launch of the Multisolving Institute and our mission of supporting leaders as they pursue multisolving approaches
