This is not that.

ThinkPlace is really excited to be launching CIPI: The Community for Innovation and Public Impact. And we would love you to be a part of it.

For more than a decade we’ve used our unique methodology to tackle the world’s most complex problems, taking a human-centred approach to creating positive social change. We were recently named Social Change Maker of the Year in the Telstra Australian Business Awards.

We have grown to be a global network of changemaking design studios, spanning eight locations in five countries. We collaborate every day with some of the world’s leading governments, organisations and companies to unlock innovation and lead large-scale transformation using a design thinking approach.

Now we want to share it with you.

“We want to bring together a real community of people who are interested in making the world better,” says ThinkPlace Partner Darren Menachemson.

“By sharing our challenges, our knowledge and our ideas with each other we can all sharpen our tools and amplify our impact. And that’s extremely exciting.”

What is CIPI?

CIPI is a genuine, authentic community of people who are working to create positive change in the world. For us it means 'moving the needle' on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For you it may mean something else. CIPI 's membership spans across Government organisations, NGO’s and innovative businesses.

It seeks to bring together those who are working to improve people’s lives and create positive impact at a systems level.

The makers and the doers who are putting people at the heart of their design process. Driving new processes, new organisation structures, new ways of delivering services, new public health interventions…
