Chapter: Collective Action for Change – M. Ledwith

This chapter covers critical pedagogy and key Freirean concepts using case studies and practical examples to explain the differences between domesticating and liberating education and acting with and not for the people.

It also talks to the challenges of “a culture of individualism and a politics of consumerism” and globalisation to collective organising. This includes overcoming these obstacles through realising the importance of building sustainable alliances among different groups, and connecting the local and the global to lead to transformative change.
