Keywords:Key words: education, conversation, feedback, transformation, multispecies relationships, re-generation
The paper gives an overview of some of the activities associated with balancing individualism and collectivism (2019-2021) in particular the engagement with colleagues from a range of disciplines to bootstrap change through inviting them to contribute to two edited collections, namely
- From polarisation to Multispecies Relationships : Re-generation of the commons in the era of mass extinctions and
- Transformative Education for Regenerative Development: Pathways to Sustainable Environments with a linked website to inspire engagement towards a circular green economy based on a one village, many enterprises approach. The paper discusses the potential and challenges of on line cross cultural engagement with peers, graduates and members of the community through ccapacity enhancement approaches to balance individualism and collectivism. The art of the impossible was inspired by the pandemic and zoom engagement became a matter of course in order to work on small pilots. The paper makes the case that education, design and the ethical values that undermine positive feedback to support wellbeing stocks need to be supported and those interventions that undermine wellbeing and contribute to pathology or the undermining of ecosystems should be penalised and sanctioned in law .
