What is PAR?

Participatory Action Research is an approach that bridges science and practice. It combines the best of both in order to boost the transit to a more sustainable world. Our PAR processes empower local communities to tackle the world’s most complex issues with the crowd, leading to unexpected, yet extraordinary effective results.
