About Ashridge and Sustainability
Sustainability is one of the most influential business megatrends of the 21st century and therefore needs to be a central focus of any business school serious about helping organisations to embrace change and responsibility.
Ashridge has played a pivotal role in helping organisations embrace sustainable development since the mid-1990s when we first established the Ashridge Centre for Business and Sustainability.
About action research
Action research is a process which involves you becoming an active investigator into your own life, work and organisation. It encourages you to experience topics raised on the programme through your different daily activities and approaches at work.
It incorporates a wide range of practices and ideas with a strong pedigree in the fields of organisational change and community development. It also invites you to develop a discipline of thinking, personal reflection and testing of ideas through action experiments.
Each workshop includes some time in small peer learning groups and in the whole group, helping you become clearer about the questions that lie at the heart of your role and your organisation. To find out more about Ashridge and Action Research, why not visit our Centre for Action Research.
