Sustainable change can only exist as a discovery, in the surprise
OTHERWHERE wants to play an active, positive role in today’s changing society by helping your organisation to reach its desired destination. We design and support campaigns that will make you climb the highest mountains. We build communities larger and stronger than the oldest mountain chains. We facilitate organisational development processes that will make you impact entire continents, as powerful as even the smallest volcano.
You pick your destination, our Sherpas will guide you along the way.
A sherpa is an experienced guide helping others on a mountain climbing expedition. Our Sherpas design and facilitate ambitious expeditions that will support you and your organisation to generate maximum impact within your field.
Otherwhere is an archaic adverb from the 14th century meaning “in or to another place”, or simply “elsewhere”. The concept of ‘otherwhere' preserves some mystery when it comes to the final destination, yet always reminds us where we come from. The journey is essential.
We identify opportunities and design public actions to help you deliver more complete and resilient solutions to systemic challenges
The strongest communities
We build stronger and more resilient networks and communities of organisations working together towards common goals
Small organisation? Big impact!
We support you in realising sustainable transition through strengthening your organisation's innovative qualities and capacities
A different approach to change
We believe that one can learn more from successes than from failures. Through this appreciative perspective we do right to all involved; we increase the learning possibilities and the motivation to put new things into practice. Systems develop in the direction of the questions we ask.
For us it is essential to actively involve all stakeholders in the design process to ensure the result meets the needs of the organisation. Together with our clients we co-create the most innovative concepts and ideas that generate real impact.
To survive in today’s rapidly changing world, organisations must not only anticipate change, but drive it. We use future-oriented design principles in order to increase your organisation's innovative and competitive qualities.
We do not offer standardised products or services. All our processes are uniquely designed for your organisation to answer your specific needs. Our Sherpas take you to mountain peaks never climbed before.
