This article reports and reflects on a decade-long action experiment to devise a form of business education for sustainability which helps managers act as 'pro-sustainability' agents of change, whilst simultaneously acknowledging that the managerialist assumptions underpinning this aspiration are part of the problem that change for sustainability needs to address. Adopting a reflexive action research approach, tentative conclusions are reached about the paradoxical nature of educational practice in this contested area.

In this article, Dr. Gill Coleman argues that sustainability is a learning challenge that can be effectively addressed using the principles and practice of action research. She introduces examples from the Ashridge MSc in Sustainability and Responsibility, and proposes the potential for action research to become a vehicle for lasting personal and organisational change.
