You are invited to join us for a conversation with Hilary Bradbury about the importance of action logics in sustainability initiatives. Action logics refer to developmental stages that guide people's actions. For transformative action researchers, this means bringing awareness of inner territories of human experience to engagement with stakeholders.
How do people see and take action with their problems? As Hilary Bradbury explains, "Placing scholarly emphasis solely on "expert understandings" of our sustainability challenges is important. But it is no longer enough for supporting timely responses to climate change." The discussion in this symposium will focus on ways to collaborate with a wide range of people in participatory and engaging ways.
