Three sessions will explore in parallel new strategies for building movements.  Participants will have a choice of 2 out of 3 sessions (2x 90 min rotations) 

[The sessions will provide in depth view of strategies innovation players employ to influence policy discourse and tackle ‘sticky’ development issues mindful of some of the key drivers explored in the first session of Day 1 - strategies that point out how innovation players rethink entry points for their interventions to maximize the likelihood of success; rethink various sources of evidence in order to mobilize all partners with a stake in the issue; and reframe the focus toward targeting and leveraging assets as opposed to needs alone]           
Redefining evidence:

From linear narratives to speculative design (imagination) and a focus on ‘thick data’ with participation of Twiga, SolarCoin, Peta  Jakarta, Georgian Policy Innovation Lab, 00 Studios
