Learning as the Construction and Re-Mediation of Activity Systems: Environmental Management in Biogas Production
Pereira Querol, Marco A.; Suutari, Timo; Seppanen, Laura
Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, v16 n4 p373-384 2010
The purpose of this paper is to present theoretical tools for understanding the dynamics of change and learning during the emergence and development of environmental management activities. The methodology consists of a historical analysis of a case of biogas production that took place in the Southwest region of Finland. The theoretical tools used helped to see how the content of an activity guided the historical emergence and change of an EM activity. The practical implication of the paper is that environmental solutions should not be restricted to the adaptation of a system, but should also include the possibility of constructing a new activity, with a new object and means of production. The paper is original in presenting theoretical tools for grasping the content of learning in environmental management activities. (Contains 1 table.)
