The Transgressive Learning in Times of Climate Change (T-learning) project is one of three transformative knowledge networks funded under the International Social Sciences Council Transformations to Sustainability Programme. The three transformative knowledge networks are supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The programme forms part of the wider Future Earth Science Programme.
The t-learning programme is led by and co-operatively supported by a National Research Foundation (NRF) South African Research Chair (SARChI Chair). The SARChI Chair is located at Rhodes University in the Environmental Learning Research Centre.
Professor Heila Lotz-Sisitka, SARChI Chair in Transformative Social Learning and Green Skills Learning Pathways, is the co-ordinator of the T-learning Transformative Knowledge Network.
These are partners that have joined together to initiate the research school, and case studies that demonstrate diverse aspects of t-learning. They are committed to t-learning research as activism, co-engaged methodology development, an ethic of care and responsibility, and transformations towards sustainability, the common good and the good life.

Join the TKN with by sharing narratives of t-learning
To become an affiliated partner you can conduct t-learning research based on the principles and approaches developed in the t-learning network. Once a year the t-learning network will call for case stories of t-learning research and will publish an on-line ‘narratives of t-learning’ resource which will describe t-learning research taking place in research and learning contexts in a diversity of places. Submissions will be subject to selection and review before being placed on the ‘narratives of t-learning’ platform.
Criteria for submission of t-learning narratives will be posted here. Stories should be no longer than 1500 words, and should include at least four high quality, relevant graphics. The first call for affiliated narratives of t-learning in times of climate change will be made in February 2017 for an April 2017 deadline.
