Pathways beyond Show Me The Change

Show Me The Change is linked to a range of conferences in Australia and around the world. It seems like it is ‘the time’ for people to explore complexity and rethink the way we have been approaching behaviour change and it’s evaluation.

One such gathering is in Melbourne. Hosted by the folks at ALARA (Action Learning Action Research Association), this event is sure to attract people from our’s and visa-versa!

Ross Colliver was kind enough to provide some words to describe the conference …
