Abstract


  • Cynefin (pronounced cun-ev-in) ‘is a Welsh word with no direct equivalent in English. As a noun it is translated as habitat, as an adjective acquainted or familiar. More poetically, it describes “that relationship: the place of your birth and of your upbringing, the environment in which you live and to which you are naturally acclimatised.’ Cognitive Edge 2006).
