INTERNATIONAL TRANSFORMATIVE LEARNING CONFERENCE <>About the Conference: The future of the earth and its people are inextricably woven together. Profound transformations are currently underway on many dimensions: personal, ecological, cultural, societal, and economic. To engage these challenges and opportunities, we must collaboratively re-imagine how individuals, institutions, and societies can learn new capacities and habits of being. We envision the upcoming Tenth International Conference on Transformative Learning as an opportunity to create a more coherent and dynamic praxis for transformative learning in multiple domains and at multiple levels; praxis weaves together theory and practice, action and reflection.
We will gather to articulate a more inclusive and clear vision of what we already know, and to explore what we can discover together, about the role of transformative learning in creating a just and sustainable future.
