Hank Kune has over 40 years of experience as a facilitator, workshop & conference moderator, and developer of methodologies for innovation and change. He has worked extensively with public sector organizations in the Netherlands, as well as diverse innovation initiatives throughout the European Union and Japan. Facilitating hands-on change in complex multi-stakeholder environments is a common theme of this work, which has focused on systemic and open innovation, orchestrating innovation ecosystems, supporting the entrepreneurial mindset of communities, enhancing cross-border collaboration, and creating conditions for dialogue that leads to renewal. He has also published extensively on these issues. As one of the pioneers of the Aalto Camp for Societal Innovation, Hank has co-organized, moderated, or mentored more than 25 Camps in 16 countries since 2010. At present, Hank is co-initiator of the Global Lab for Climate Resilience, which aims to address major climate resilience challenges as collaborative innovation projects. Positive Cartography is one such project. His work on dedicated innovation-enabling environments – action learning camps, future centers, and living labs – has supported many organizations to achieve ambitious objectives. Hank lives in the Netherlands, where he is director of Educore BV, a Founding Partner of the Future Center Alliance, and co-founder of International Initiatives for Societal Innovation.
