  • Webinar: #MeThree: Inviting suppressed experiences in self and stakeholders

    Lead Discussant: Jean Hartmann Host: Hilary Bradbury/ Steve Waddell Date/Time: 30, 75 minutes starting 8 am PT/11am ET/4pm UK/5pm CET Description: #Me Too offers an example of huge social shift in a short time, emerging from local actions and using social media. It has much to teach us about transformation. As Action Researchers we ask, what comes after #MeToo? Hence the term #MeThree… a time in which previously suppressed voices are included in reflection on experience and design of future experiments. What do we know about inviting those voices to speak? Those voices both in ourselves and among our stakeholders? Registration is mandatory, please register here:

  • Webinar: Preserving bio-productivity & bio-diversity: A Large Scale AR Transformational Challenge

    Lead Discussant: Derk Loorbach Hosts: Hilary Bradbury/ Steve Waddell Date/Time: Feb. 13, 75 minutes starting 8 am PT/11am ET/4pm UK/5pm CET Description: Bio-diversity is rapidly, disastrously declining. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) acknowledges failing on most targets and is searching for more transformative approaches to be embedded in the post 2020 framework that has to be agreed upon in Beijing in 2020. On the way to Beijing, a number of countries want to explore using approaches and tools provided by the transitions and transformations communities to accelerate shifts towards sustainable futures in food, energy, forestry and fisheries across the globe. We discuss ideas for a framework to provide such transition support and ask how action researchers can be engaged in this process to provide the knowledge, tools, capacities and skills to make this happen. Please join this webinar to learn about the transformational challenges to preserve biodiversity and become engaged in supporting this process. Registration is mandatory, please register here:

  • Webinar: Progressing collective goals such as a global virtual university

    Hosts and Lead Discussants: Hilary Bradbury/ Steve Waddell Date/Time: 27, 75 minutes starting 8 am PT/11am ET/4pm UK/5pm CET Description: The Global University for Action Researchers in Transformation is a proposed learning platform, bringing together educators and learning participants. It is supporting people’s learning agendas and leveraging experiments in service of the SDG’s by 2030 — combining sustainability/SDG leading practices/science and personal leadership (“inner work”). ART GU is a collaborative effort, drawing on different partners learning platforms working in federation with one another. It is leveraging the enormous (but often lost) wealth of peer reviewed science in actionable form. The central organizing hub is AR+ until a robust proof of concept has been realized.
