TOOLBOX

During 2019-22 our work focuses on applying a conscious full-spectrum approach to our different Program activities, including both research and education, to increase their potential to achieve radical transformational change. In this context, we work with frameworks developed by Monica Sharma (RTLeads) and CChange (TLFS) as well as other approaches (e.g. The Sustainability Mindset, The Inner Green Deal, IDGs, UNDP-CoFSA, The Work that Reconnects) to identify how our innate, universal values and capabilities can create new patterns that effectively address sustainability challenges.

Part of this work is the identification and collection of methods and tools for improved, critical teaching and learning to support our education activities on this issue. We present below an overview of such tools (draft list). Information about the project in relation to our research activities can be accessed here.
