This new online summer course launched by The Integral Without Borders Research centre takes an internal and comprehensive approach to social change. ā€œInterdisciplinaryā€ is indeed the key word to transformation.Read More

From 11th July to 7th August 2016 theĀ Integral Without BordersĀ will be piloting a new online course onĀ ā€œTransdisciplinary and Transformative Practices in Social Changeā€. The courseĀ aims to introduce the participant to transdisciplinary approaches to social change and international development. The course will draw extensively on integral theory, a theory thatĀ provides a framework to fuse multiple separate perspectives or disciplines in order to decode complex problems – problems such as those global issues that transcend single scientific theories and cultural contexts. On that account, Ken Wilber, the originator of integral theory, is himself a scientific advisor and board member of Integral Without Borders.

The organizer of the course, Integral Without Borders,Ā seeks to spread a ā€œpost-conventional worldviewĀ of international development and social changeā€. In that regard, boosting oneā€™s personal sustainable development or social innovation project at a local level will be the ending point of this journey! It will be achieved through a progressive process of self-identification of the practitionerā€™s strengths, challenges and purpose.

An articleĀ on ā€œIntegral adaptation to Climate Changeā€ that Karen Oā€™Brien co-wrote with Gail Hochachka for theĀ Journal of Integral Theory and PracticeĀ is featured on the required reading list for the course.Ā Integral theory is central to the methodological fundament behind our actions at cChange. Therefore, we would like to recommend anyone interested in this approach to have a look at the course webpage.

The course runs over four weeks and is still open for registration.
