Developing compassionate sense of place: Experience and pedagogy in the creation of social and environmental conscientization.
“This research will investigate the following question: What role do environmental and social change organizations play in altering cultural norms? This question generates the following subquestions: How do non-formal learning opportunities, such as social activism or voluntarism, contribute to the conscientization of people to environmental and social conditions? How is social capital used to advance the learning opportunities for the organizations and public? How does the local place and global awareness intersect in these questions and what can that teach about global community-building?”
