Abstract

Most indicators measuring the health of the planet show a negative trend and global inequality has been on the rise for decades. These systemic global crises require a deep rethinking of our economic, political, and social systems. However, most activism is not yet promoting such deeper systemic shifts, nor is it embracing the complexity of systemic change in its strategies. There is a range of knowledge from theory and practice that civil society can learn from in order to develop and put into practice strategies that tackle the underlying cultural and structural root causes of the crises. Against this background this article focuses on the role of civil society for societal learning.
