Citizen-led change is fundamental to the realization of justice, rights, and abundance for all. Thinking and learning are crucial to doing collective action for community development. Known by different names, such as popular or adult education, or workshops, trainings, or study circles, people come together, in-person or online, to critically analyze, reflect, and strategize. This webinar highlights diverse practices of learning in and for community development in different contexts around the world.
