We are facilitators of social systems change. We are convinced that today’s complexity offers fantastic opportunities for creativity, innovation and collaboration. By embracing complexity, we can create our desired future together.
How can we help you?
Facilitation of multi stakeholder processes
To foster collaboration and innovation, we facilitate dialogue processes with diverse stakeholders around shared challenges. Strengthening common ground and including a diversity in perspectives brings depth, generates new insights and provides opportunities for strategic decision making and collective action.
Narrative research and evaluation
To unravel patterns in complexity, we use the power of stories for research and evaluation in a participatory and inclusive manner. By collecting personal experiences and making sense of their meaning, we help you draw lessons from the past, learn from their effects on the present and make decisions for the future.
Leadership and capacity Strengthening
To help you and your organisation navigate complexity, we offer group training and coaching on the job. We help you to strengthen your leadership skills and provide tools and methodologies that you can use to manage complex situations.

Water security is key to our collective future, yet many places in the world experience severe water insecurity. We have to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all (SDG 6). Perspectivity facilitated this initiative for the Global South on the future of water security in the lead-up to the UN 2023 Water Conference.
“Perspectivity’s work is based on human contact and social structures. Human contact is a whimsical process. It can rub, explode, unite or run smoothly.”
