Since PALAR is particularly useful to address complex problems in rapidly changing contexts, the unprecedented challenges now facing people from all walks of life as a consequence of technological, environmental, economic, social and political change underscore the importance and timeliness of this book. g. floods, droughts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, rising seas), global financial crises, escalating food shortages and human poverty present not just challenges but also opportunities. Responding most effectively, in ways that are sensitive to the needs of all involved, is a huge challenge, as the December 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Denmark so amply attests.
The new concept of PALAR is important in this chapter because both action learning and action research need to be participatory in the three areas discussed: (1) community development, (2) action leadership development and (3) development of lifelong learning. This chapter introduces a new approach to development that serves all three areas. The new system using this approach, designed and offered by the Global University for Lifelong Learning (GULL), is explained and illustrated by examples from many parts of the world, including two case studies – of recovery efforts in Haiti and of Samoan migrants in Australia.
These alternative approaches consequently help to cultivate new understandings and practice of leadership in the form of primus inter pares. Today, rapid economic, political, technological, social and ecological changes and natural disasters of floods, droughts and earthquakes dramatically reshape the lives of many. It is therefore crucial that the type of research and development is fast, innovative and pro-active rather than reactive to most effectively address the complex problems that these contemporary changes produce and maximize the opportunities they enable.
