Three Ambitions Framework

The ability of those eager to make progress on the world’s most pressing challenges – climate change, economic inequities, racism – depends on their ability to innovate, change systems and transform the deeper worldviews that help keep stubborn problems in place. Yet, the effort of change-makers is often hampered by differences of opinion – even confusion — on what these terms mean, how they relate to each other, and the practical implications for their work. The Three Ambitions Continuum is a mash-up of some of the most popular change-oriented frameworks floating around the field that aims to provide one way that social innovators can make sense of it all.
