|Your Name||Noreen Byrne|
|Cohort Assignment||Cohort A (Europe + MENA)|
|1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?|
Research and also teaching.
Community action reserach - with students - would like to get students and community to think in a regenerative development way if possible
|2. What role do you see as yours to play?|
explore the development of regenerative enabling capability indicators in an Irish context (with a particular focus at the moment on the credit union and agricultural co-operative sector)
|3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?|
|4. Where do you feel your next arenas for personal growth are?|
Perhaps become a better listener and let things emerge rather than jumping in with a solution.
|5. And for professional growth?|
Develop the community action part of my teaching
I have an interest in relational approaches to understanding reality (and my area of study co-operatives) - would like to continue to develop this.
|6. What have you invested in to get you where you are?|
I am not sure - perhaps reading and co-ordinating different ideas
|7. What fields of learning and which thinkers have been important in your life?|
DH lawrence, Buber, Kropktin, Robert Owen, AE Russell, Colin Ward, John Steinbeck, Levinas
|8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?|
I have a reluctance towards ideological codes of any sort (even if well meaning) which result in polarisation and some have almost become like a religion.
I do think humans have a role to play - I have a concern about the increasing discussion around percision fermention and the removal of farmers from the food system. Corporate aspect of this makes me nervous.
