About this group

This group is convened by Andrew Ware

The group is designed for those who want to discuss decarbonisation and related improvement ideas for Wales. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the world saw amazing improvements in the environment to show us what is possible. Decarbonisation can lead to huge gains in preventing and reducing ill-health.

The group will follow a Critical Social Learning System (CSLS) framework (Bawden), to braid inspirational and experiential learning; taking concrete experiences, insights and reflections from members and explore active applications and experimentations. Members can expect constructive feedback, exposure to an array of tools and methods borrowed from other social learning, improvement and development lineages.
