Back to school: what the birth of rock and roll tells us about change

29 Sep, 2020

Join DRIFTers Sophie Buchel and Gijs Diercks and other panelists as they discover what the rise of rock and roll can tell us about societal change. In the first instalment of the three-part webinar series Stories of Change, it’s all eyes on the Multi-Level Perspective (MLP) framework, and how it can help us understand transitions in history. Thanks, School of System Change!
Multi-Level Perspective  explains how transitions manifest through interactions between different levels of societal systems. We can use the MLP for systemic diagnosis–such as diagnosing complex challenges within societal systems such as mobility, housing or food.
This Stories of Change session focuses on the seemingly sudden rise of rock and roll in the 1950s. The speaker panel will discuss the MLP to understand the story behind this radical shift in the American music industry. Our panel of speakers comes from The School of System Change/Forum of the Future, The Dutch Research Institute For Transitions (DRIFT), and Glider Global.
And there’s a video, of course:
