Our apologies for the time taken to draw together some of the material from our systemic inquiry.
A summary Final Report to VolkswagenStiftung was submitted on 17th December 2015. We invite, in particular, all participants to look at the report with a critical eye – do offer feedback, both affirming and/or improving. For example are there elements in the report which you would particularly like to support? What was important to you that we have missed?
Are there initiatives or reflections that have followed from your participation that would be good for us (as an on-going inquiry conversation) to know about?
A more substantive report is being prepared – it is partially finished and should be posted here soon.
Anyone who has photos they would like to see posted to this site are invited to contact Kevin or Ray.
Please note that in the report to VolkswagenStiftung a suite of proposed follow-up actions are reported e.g. policy briefings; a journal special issue; follow-up focused meetings. If anyone wishes to offer contributions or suggestions regarding any of these please contact us or post here.
