ecosystems thinking

The challenges and opportunities that we face in the rapidly changing times that we are living in, call for new approaches. 

In order to thrive as a creative society in balance with earth's resources, we need to take a macro view of the networks of interactions that surround us, and fundamentally shift our understanding of how we capture and generate value.

From how we produce, work and travel, to what type of businesses, technologies and policies we create, every action we take has an impact on society and on the planet.

Understanding the interconnectedness between all actors, actions and variables, interacting in multiple systems and contexts, is essential to bring us closer to a position of making smarter and more sustainable choices.

The times of linear, silo-driven, competitive thinking, are over.

A collaborative platform for a new kind of problem-solvers.
Designed to transfer knowledge in a systemic,
interdisciplinary and dynamic way.

 

How might nature inspired systems change the way we use digital information?

Following the principles of biological patterns, evolutionary strategies and ecosystems dynamics; we've designed an information system that provides the ability to store, retrieve and compute data in a naturally connected way.

By connecting interdisciplinary knowledge, visualising its relationships and understanding the value that every network agent can bring to an ecosystem, we can use our collective wisdom to inspire a new generation of thinkers, creators, inventors and entrepreneurs, to pursue endeavours that generate positive and sustainable impact for a better future for all.

EMPOWERING PERSPECTIVES AND CONNECTING SOLUTIONS

People, communities and organisations from all over the world, working on all types of ecosystems -natural, social, organisational, technological-, are finding their own unique way to make the most out of the 7Vortex community platform.

Together, we are building a collective source of inspiration and knowledge, that evolves together with each member and the community as a whole.

founding team

7Vortex is the evolution of an intertwined journey of endeavours, friendship and mutual inspiration between Hugo and Camille.

While our work is informed by 40+ combined years of experience in a wide range of industries, countries and sectors, our bond is based on our values, our shared wonder of the world around us, and mostly, by a strong sense of purpose about how we can play an active role in shaping a more sustainable and equitable way of life.

You can find here an extended version of our story, in the meantime, don't hesitate to reach out, we are always open to exploring new ideas. 

Although we move around quite a bit, you can generally find at least one of us in Brussels or Mexico City which are the places we call home.

OUR VISION

a creative society thriving in balance with the planet

global catalyst network

Systemic change is inherently an individual and collective effort. Which is why, to allow ourselves to dream about it, we need to understand our reality from as many perspectives as possible; it is diversity what gives us richness and choice.

 

We have a global network of innovation agents and agencies, which are continuously looking to expand and activate. The network is based on mutually reinforcing relationships and, not only does it help everyone to grasp new opportunities, but it plays a key role in increasing our cultural and geographical outreach.


Please reach out if you feel identified with our vision.

If you are looking for support to build ecosystems thinking capabilities, or partners to explore the realisation of specific initiatives, get in touch with us to explore if we or someone from the network can help.
