AFP-Early-Childhood-Development-Story-of-a-Social-Lab-150727-1July 2015 marks the end of the third stage of the System Shift initiative. This report describes the two-and-a-half year journey that has led us to here. It has involved various stages and organisations over its life as participants have sought out ways of “building leadership and capability to work differently together to improve outcomes for Australian children”.

It has been a team effort with successes to date thanks to the support and enthusiasm shown by the Sponsor Group, funders, interviewees, retreat participants, and the many other individuals and organisations who contributed over the three stages of its life.
