The PIMA Network has dedicated its 39th Bulletin to the topic of Climate Justice and Adult Learning and Education (ALE).
The guest editor of the bulletin, Professor Shirley Walters, in her introduction says: “Three years ago, PIMA started a series of conversations on Climate Justice and ALE as we believed that adult educators and lifelong learning practitioners have much to contribute to inter- and trans-disciplinary teams and movements to develop climate-just responses to the climate emergency that is unfolding.
“This Special Edition of the Bulletin builds on the webinar interactions – the themes mirror and extend some of those discussions and debates. It is a partial account of the many issues that arise.”
The Bulletin has three sections:
- Concepts and contexts
- What works, and lessons learnt
- PIMA Business.
The PIMA team which is designing and facilitating the webinars and co-creating this Bulletin, are (in alphabetical order): Liz Boulton, Jane Burt, Shauna Butterwick, Darlene Clover, Colette February, Dorothy Lucardie, Joy Polanco O’Neil, Astrid von Kotze and Shirley Walters (Convenor).
“We are hoping that the Special Edition can be used as an aid to discussion within our networks to deepen and expand praxis. We encourage you to use it towards this end.”Professor Shirley Walters, University of the Western Cape, South Africa
