The nature and extent of the environmental crisis facing humanity today points clearly to the need for radical transformation across all dimensions of human existence. Social, political, economic and cultural change will all be required if we are to move towards a more just and sustainable future. Underpinning all such changes are the transformations required at the individual level. It is through the collective efforts and demands of individuals that the impetus for broader societal change will develop.
This workshop emerges from the praxis of three educators who, in their respective disciplines of architecture and social work, and on opposite sides of the globe, engage in work characterised as 'teaching for transformation' (Pooley, 2011; Jones, 2011). In particular, the facilitators are involved in using critical reflection as a means of supporting students to identify, re-evaluate and transform their assumptions and preconceptions about their relationships to nature, and in doing so become more environmentally responsible.
