Abstract [en]

The need for a radical transformation of society, business and way of life towards sustainability is by now widely accepted and acknowledged in the Mid Scandinavian region. This transformation also occurs as a major objective in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, both nationally and locally. However, after creating awareness, moving from knowing to doing is now the real challenge. Pushing for sustainability in strategies and visions, or even providing extensive funding for projects related to sustainable development is not doing the job fast enough. One obvious reason being that the more sustainable ideas and solutions of the future do require new levels of systems thinking and solutions on the level of the “whole system”. That in turn is dependent on connections and relations across traditional silos and organizational borders that currently does not exist. Therefore, stakeholders from Sweden and Norway are currently experimenting together on using a living and communicating network of Appreciative Inquiry Summits to accelerate sustainable, circular, and flourishing development in Scandinavia. The initiative is designed as an innovation project with hands-on exploring, prototyping, as well as researching how to accelerate the desired transformation. The project, called SMICE, is inspired by the “whole system in the room” approach of the amazing initiative “Sustainable Cleveland 2019”. However, as the context of this initiative is a large sparsely populated region, including also several countries, the set up now evolving is moving beyond just one annual big AI-summit towards more of a distributed system, “ecosystem”, or network of AI-summits and other resources that live, communicate and relate to each other continuously. During this presentation we will share our progress made, results, learnings, challenges, insights, and practices from our exciting and important journey so far.
