Ecosystems are a group of interconnected elements linked by the interaction of individuals and communities with their environment. Ecosystem building is the linking and leveraging of networks to strengthen and support the networks of interdependent communities and individuals.
Ecosystem building tackles deeply entrenched and complex social problems by addressing the culture (the unspoken rules) of the system. It is an innovative and structured approach to collaborating across sectors to achieve a fertile context for system-wide growth.
