What are missions as a way of working?
A mission-oriented approach aims to achieve system change. Actors from different sectors, industries and disciplines gather around a bold, inspiring and measurable objective that must be achieved within a certain time period. The goal should have an impact on society and politics, and be relevant to a large part of the population.
- Missions as a way of working are based on cross-sectoral collaborations.
- The approach requires a mix of top-down and bottom-up initiatives, all with a common direction.
- The work is coordinated by actors at system level, but is based on a joint-force gathering. The changes happen when everyone moves towards the objective formulated together.
- Working this way, you can approach the Agenda 2030 goals differently. The objectives formed in the mission work address real societal challenges that span several of the goals in Agenda 2030.
