The Learn theme is focused on several different sections of the Social Change Wheel including raising public awareness about a social issue, deliberative and reflective dialogue, socially responsible daily behavior, and community-based research. Focusing on this theme allows us to continue educating ourselves and others, as well as collecting information from each other and from communities in order to create community focused solutions.
