Facilitating Systemic Research and Learning and the Transition to Agricultural Sustainability
Eksvard, Karin
Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, v16 n3 p265-280 Sep 2010
This article focuses on how a facilitated process of triple loop learning can enable transition toward more sustainable forms of farming. The article is a case-based study of Participatory Learning and Action Research with organic tomato growers in Malardalen, Sweden. The importance of negotiating learning and action, capacity building, and creating a systemic process is highlighted. Practical insights are developed into the process of facilitated learning, and the development of capacity for this. The article adds to existing knowledge of responsive approaches to the flux of system change and adds to the understanding of facilitation for scale-compatible decisions on transitions toward sustainable development. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
