Learning & Social Transformation
Enabling a culture of learning is increasingly important for organisations and individuals pursuing social justice and change. There also appears to be a shift beyond ideas of training, workshops and courses to the opening-up of co-learning and co-creative spaces which emphasise dialogue, collaboration and collective social action.
Are there different spaces, approaches and processes of learning which support sustainable and collective social transformation?
In which ways do they enable the most marginalised to be the drivers of change?
Can we find common principles which underpin the approach to learning?
This is the first in a series of #CoLabs which will aim to open up the space to co-learn and collaborate on questions and issues in relation to international development, social justice and human rights. There is no time like the present to re-think and re-invent the current ways of working but we need to do this together as part of a collective movement for social change.
Co-Labs are co-learning and co-creative spaces which bring together different actors to generate collective dialogue and action around questions that matter to all of us. We want everyone’s knowledge and experiences to be valued and for everyone to be part of collaborative learning and collective change. You will build on experiences, knowledge and practice through collaborative dialogue, interacting with and connecting with each other, inquiring into current practice and collectively exploring new ideas and action.
Participate in this one-day CoLab and take a deep dive in collaboration with others to explore the relationship between learning and social change.
Individuals, organisations or groups interested in, working with or wanting to explore further the relationship between learning and social transformation, who are willing to share their practice and engage in dialogue, inquiry and collaboration.
