community development, teachers and community change agents, learning theories and methods with social change theories and methods, etc. A great and promising challenge. I would like to participate in it.
Somehow I have already been part of this conversation and experience for some years. Even if we have in Latinamerica some experience with Paulo Freire, Ivan Illich and others on popular and critical education, and with Orlando Fals-Borda and others on participatory action research, the linkage between both currents has not been easy. The school and University involvement on community based research and development has been difficult; change agents involvement with School and University work and transformation has also been difficult. Politics, policies, socio-economics, ideological debates and more are just some ingredients for a difficult interdisciplinary process. I would like to follow the British and other European experiences.
Just to facilitate our own learning and change conversations, I have organized a 30+ cluster of groups and resources at Twine covering different related domains. Please have a look if some may be useful for your purposes or add some resources from your own experience.
