Hi. While a lot of the literature in transformative learning relates to individual transformation, and rightly so, can anyone direct me to any research or information on how transformation at a community level has been made manifest? The regional Australian community in which I live is trying to revitalise a rather tired persona and is challenging its citizens to revisit some of their negative perceptions of our town and consider new, more positive conceptualisations. It still requires…See More

Hello Julie,

I suggest you take a look at www.ottoscharmer.com (MIT) and his global network of practitioners and social change initiatives www.presencing.com.  Theory U may support you with an approach.  We have used it very successfully for fostering transformative changes at a community level, amongst many (and sometimes quite divided) stakeholders.  You will find theory, practitioner tools and case studies there.  

Another supportive publication you might be interested in is called Solving Tough Problems by Adam Kahane.  His third book, Transformative Scenario Planning for large scale social change, also provides a little more insight into approach/methodology.

And a terrific example of transformative change at a social level - across  borders, cultures and supply-chains - is the Sustainable Food Lab. See www.sustainablefoodlab.org.

Hope that helps you a little. I also work around the world fostering transformative dialogues across networks/groups/communities, often in deeply divided contexts.  Am normally based in Melbourne when in the country if you would like to chat sometime.

Regards, Michael
