About Map the System

Map the System is a global competition of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in partnership with educational institutions across the world.

Map the System asks participants to use ‘systems thinking’ as a guiding approach to understanding complex social and environmental challenges. Participants are evaluated based not on a ‘solution’ to a problem, but rather on the depth of understanding of the problem, including an analysis of existing solution efforts, impact gaps and opportunities for positive change. Participants create systems maps as a means to articulate their findings in a way that people can meaningfully understand, share, and learn from – key skill sets for those interested in creating systemic social or environmental change.
