Using Visioning Tools

Envisioning a Theory of Change (ToC) becomes necessary as soon as you and your community have identified a relevant local need and a desired alternative future. In the context of this seminar, we understand the Theory of Change as a Visioning Tool.

The goal of the ToC is to develop the missing link between an identified problem and the long-term positive vision you would like to co-create. Working on the Theory of Change collaboratively is very useful. It helps aligning different interests and stakeholder groups towards shared goals and a collective vision of change. This typically includes a process of clarifying priorities and possible wider benefits.

The Theory of Change Template

During our course, we will work with the Theory of Change Template developed by the DYI School. You can find a detailed explanation here: https://diytoolkit.org/tools/theory-of-change

You can practice with this template during the online class. The final version of your Theory of Change is developed in relation to the community context you are working on, either locally, as part of your online team or during the Intensive Programmes.
