We are exploring research and work with people (enabling) rather than on them or at them (causal approaches).

Causal approaches to capacity development and change that rely on attitude change with a hope of behaviour modification are proving weak or have generally failed. We are exploring and developing enabling approaches that include participants in joint, co-engaged, capacity building. Citizen science tools are proving a breakthrough here.

An example of this is the citizen science tool miniSASS. This Stream Assessment Scoring System, a bio-monitoring approach, is proving popular to achieve the SDG target Indicator 6.3.2 and at the same time mobilise communities and societies!
