Cycloop is a network for facilitation and action research in multi-actor collaboration. This relates to forms of collaboration where a diversity of actors, such as governments, businesses, NGO’s, experts, citizens and interest groups collaborate to deal with so-called ‘meta-problems’ (eg. flood management, waste management, city development) in an innovative way. Multi-actor collaboration is required when different interdependent ‘actors’ jointly try to solve complex situations. This is usually the case when actors search for sustainable solutions.
Central issues in the work of Cycloop are sustainability, diversity, network organizations, social learning, leadership, innovation and system interventions. We specifically focus on the process, the dynamics and the relational quality of the tuning efforts among different actors.
