Conceptualizing Learning in the Climate Justice Movement
Kluttz, Jenalee; Walter, Pierre
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v68 n2 p91-107 May 2018
This article extends Scandrett et al.'s conceptual framework for social movement learning to understand learning and knowledge creation in the climate justice movement. Drawing on radical pluralist theoretical approaches to social movement learning, learning in the climate justice movement is conceptualized at the micro, meso, and macro levels, along two continua of (a) unorganized and organized learning and (b) individual and collective learning. Two critical themes of "learning about power" and "learning about place" are used as examples to illustrate learning across the three levels. Article conclusions discuss strengths and limitations of the conceptual framework and directions for further research to better understand adult learning within the climate justice movement.
