Learning and Mobilising for Community Development introduces the
reader to different ways of thinking about, and organising
community-based education and training within different settings.
Stories from the global south and north illustrate approaches to
collective learning and collective action. The book provides not
only an insight into the how-to of community-based education and
training, but through a range of applications, demonstrates the
often unspoken shadow side of the developmental work we
undertake.The first section of the book outlines the key elements
that underpin effective community-based education and training. It
then locates community-based education and training within a
broader pedagogical project, by tracing the tradition of
transformative learning and education. The second half of the book
focuses on stories and practice, distilling the application of
theory and frameworks.The practitioners within this book emerge
from unique and challenging contexts. From civil resistance in West
Papua and youth empowerment in South Africa to financial freedom in
Australia, these diverse experiences speak to a common quest for
social change and justice.
