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]           
Changing the focus:

From zooming in to the problem definition to an exploration of existing assets and dynamics with participation of the Finish Government’s Experimentation Unit, InWithForward, FieldReady, Poverty Stoplight, Civic Innovation lab Abuja, Moldova’s State Chancellory Lab (MiLab)
