The challenge of learning for sustainability: A prolegomenon to theory
Recognizing that learning to manage complex problems in sustainability science is a vital and challenging process, this article critically evaluates the current paradigm for learning in the development and sustainability science context. It is argued that current approaches are too narrowly focused on mechanisms and information. Thus, the article sets forth an initial framework for restructuring how we think about the learning process. This includes internal belief systems, understanding how social networks and knowledge shape one another, and appreciating the contribution of individual experience to the learning process.
