Action Research for Sustainability book
In this book I have sought to address the overall research question of how community-based action research in the area of upstream public engagement can further new research orientations towards sustainability. Building on the previous theoretical, empirical and analytical perspectives, the purpose of this chapter is to discuss four distinct questions. The first is: What can be learned from examining the Citizen Science for Sustainability (SuScit) project building on theoretical approaches to sustainability in the context of democracy? The second: What are the contemporary conditions for furthering these perspectives in new modes of knowledge production? The third: What is offered by the framework of Critical Utopian Action Research in this respect? And finally: What do these considerations imply in terms of the idea of science furthering sustainability? To me, considering each of these questions is crucial for examining the overall research question posed by this book.
