SDX stands for Systemic Design eXchange. It began as a unique partnership between Alberta CoLab and the Skills Society Action Lab​.

SDX is an Edmonton-based community of practice that convenes unusual suspects interested in learning about systemic design as a methodology for addressing complex, real world issues.

With a bias towards learning by doing, SDX aims to be a watering hole where multiple sectors can come together, learn together, and act together. Everyone is welcome.

Together, SDX explores systems thinking, design thinking, and change lab approaches.
