For six years, the RE-AMP network—comprising 125 nonprofits and funders across eight states in the U.S.'s upper Midwest—has been focused on just one audacious goal: reducing regional global warming emissions 80 percent (from 2005 levels) by 2050. And it's working.
Much has been written about the power of collaborative networks to increase social impact. For nonprofits and funders that want to go deeper on the tactics of how to build an effective network, it is useful to understand how RE-AMP has done it. The foundation of RE-AMP's process was the tools of systems dynamics and multi-stakeholder facilitation that have been honed over decades. But what is new is the way in which RE-AMP combined these well-known "best practices" with network-centric "next practices" to create a robust, resilient, and high-impact network—one capable of coordinating work towards a common goal.
During its two-month study of RE-AMP, Monitor Institute identified six key principles that RE-AMP members followed in building their network and described them for other social-sector leaders in a comprehensive case study, available for free download at http://www.monitorinstitute.com/reamp. Join us to learn about those six principles and for a conversation about how to build collaborative networks powerful enough to move the needle on major social challenges.
Beverages and light snacks will be served

Speakers:
Heather McLeod Grant (Author of the report and a senior consultant with Monitor Institute)
Rick Reed (Original funder of RE-AMP with the Garfield Foundation)
Noah Flower (Lead researcher of the report and a consultant with Monitor Institute)
