SDG Wardley Map

SDGs / Strategy Development Workshop

Book Workshop

We are creating a set of Wardley Maps for each of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to provide insights to governments, organisations, and citizens around strategies for achieving each SDG. Our goal is to spark discussions that result in a better and wider understanding of the social, corporate and political needs behind each SDG, and critically, the corresponding changes required in the way value is delivered by our organisations and governments to achieve the SDG.

To accomplish this, we’ll be organising a series of virtual workshops to examine a single SDG in a specific geographic context.  We are looking for both scientific experts, and government & business stakeholders to join us to make this a reality.



How will the process work?

For each working group, we will organise:

  • A private introduction to Wardley Maps [1 hour] - to get you up-to-speed for the public workshop
  • A public workshop [2 hours] - to discuss and map the SDG

These workshops will typically take place over a 2-week period.  Public workshops will be advertised on in free-to-join groups (eg: Wardley Maps London).  Follow-up workshops will be organised as needed.

The resulting maps and video from the public workshops will be published under Creative Commons Share-Alike license (CC-by-SA), to ensure the public is free to benefit from them.

Why Wardley Maps?

Wardley maps are an effective way of exploring user needs, value chains, the evolution of practice & technology, and strategies.  They are ideal for examining SDGs as they will allow us to consider multiple perspectives at different levels of granularity (eg: macro → meso → micro → nano), capital flows, impediments, and strategic plays.  They will also serve as a key link between science, business, and governance by creating active dialogue, developing a common language, and highlighting practical actions that can be taken.
