The EHC Think Tank utilises a handful of powerful, systems change and human-centered design thinking tools to co-identify problems and to co-design potential solutions and trajectories for a positive future change.

On this page, we have compiled links to methods, tools, and places of inspiration that you may find helpful if you are intrigued to pursue systems change, collective impact, and design thinking.
