In essence, Meshworking™ is about how we unite a variety of stakeholders behind a common higher goal in such a way that real progress can be made in solving complex issues. Unlike in a network in which the connections between the partners are focused on their own interests, everyone's own interests are placed within the context of the common interest or purpose. In a Meshwork™, a lot of attention is therefore paid to the unique qualities of each of the partners and the way in which they can be used even better. Meshworking™ makes it possible to reveal the relationship between the driving motivations and interests of each of the partners and the common goal. This means that partners in a Meshwork™ can achieve much more together than each of the partners individually.
The MDG5 project is a good example of applying the Meshwork.
