Consider a broad geographic scope.

The socio-eco­log­i­cal sys­tem can be as large as the globe or focused on a pre­dom­i­nant­ly eco­log­i­cal­ly or polit­i­cal­ly defined area.

The scale of the socio-eco­log­i­cal sys­tem should encour­age the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of major dri­vers change and oppor­tu­ni­ties to cre­ate sys­temic change, rec­og­niz­ing that the strate­gies ulti­mate­ly select­ed for imple­men­ta­tion may end up being focused on small­er sub­sets of places or spe­cif­ic actors.
