Activating Social Change by Community Development and Participatory Research

Socio-ecological problems are highly complex, uncertain and shaped on multi-level scale. They affect multiple actors and institutions characterized by diverse kinds of knowledge, interests and values. The fundamental aim of socio-ecological transition is to arrive at sustainability. The complexity of socio-ecological transition requires the concept of sustainability to be lived and thus transformed into habits and action.

Interesting questions / statements

How can we spread the persuasion, that we have to decouple income and gainful employment?

How can we spread the matter of fact, that (quantitative) growth is not the solution, but the problem?

How can we come to a not speculative policy, that declares lifegoods (water, soil etc.) and other commons (services, infrastructure, knowledge..) and access for all citizens as a basic civil right?
