The 9th Living Knowledge Conference aimed to bring together all those involved in doing or supporting research with and for communities. What can we learn from each other’s approaches? How can we collaborate? Which links have been forged and which could we still make?
Over the years, a myriad of approaches has been developed to do collaborative research with and for communities. Different names, different (ideological) histories, and (sometimes slightly) different objectives may obscure what we all have in common: an urge to co-create and share new knowledge for an inclusive, equitable, healthy, and sustainable society.
The purpose of the Living Knowledge Network – with its persons or organisations involved – is to promote the community-oriented cooperation between civil society and those involved in learning and teaching, research, and innovation in fostering social and technological development that incorporates views, wishes, demands and knowledge of civil society and its organisations in the research and innovation process and/or curricula.
The Living Knowledge Network is dedicated to particular tasks,
* To help individuals and civil society organizations that need research support to pursue their non-profit interests;
* To enable citizens to articulate and represent their interests and needs and making research findings accessible to
the public through information and education. To support its members by facilitating the exchange of information and providing mentoring, mediation, and coaching;
To support institutions in the inclusion of civil society-oriented projects and information
activities that are consistent with the objectives set out in the preamble.
The 9th Living Knowledge Conference was held in Groningen, the Netherlands, between 27th and 30th June 2022, and was attended by Dr. Rajesh Tandon. Along with Ms. Suriani Dzulkifli, he took a Masterclass in Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR). Her constant support for “Knowledge for Change Consortium for Training in Community-Based Participatory Research” has been greatly appreciated.
