The recent referendum in Scotland provided evidence and a reminder to those of us interested in communities, social change and knowledge of the depth of the creative knowledge generating capacities of people when they are able to focus on issues that touch their lives. Community activists, scholars, artists, politicians, small and large business folks, musicians, comedians, football players were really engaged in a remarkable series of activities that brought out what the people of Scotland care about.

This grassroots depth of knowledge creation and creativity is the transformative energy that has inspired researchers, higher education and community education practitioners and community organizations to think more about research paradigms that recognize the potential of co-creating knowledge, of the role of knowledge in social movements and the need for changes in our political and educational institutions to enlarge spaces for debating new futures.

National and international networks have arisen over the past few years in support of change, but what does it really mean?

How do we find new ways to collaborate to support the really big changes that our communities, our countries and our tired planet longs for?

This discussion will look at new forms of community university partnerships.

 

Best wishes,

Thomas Allmer
