 Workshop information

  • What have you learnt through your work for social change?
  • How has this learning informed your practice?

This event is for anyone involved with social change to improve human and environmentalconditions; and for action researchers and action learners who use this orientation to inquiryfor social change.

In social change contexts knowledge is being generatedcontinually, but often little attention is given to the ways in which thisknowledge contributes to further change. There is a need to create moreeffective learning environments in which all who engage in change processesdevelop capability to access, create and share knowledge, and to engagecritically with that which is already known and recorded. 

The Facilitating Learning in Action for Social Change (FLASC)initiative aims to address these issues and increase the effectiveness ofsocial change work through exploring ways to support learning within and acrossdifferent social change contexts. 

Jen Margaret will introduce resources from the (FLASC) initiative, whichhave been created byand for practitioners.

Jenhas worked in adult education, community development and social justiceorganisations in New Zealand, England and South Africa and is active in themovement of non-indigenous people who support indigenous self-determination inAotearoa / New Zealand.  She hasrecently completed an MA thesis on learning in social movements.
