Every Friday I post some links to articles, videos or other resources that have caught my eye during the week. Some might be quite recent, but others might be older ones I have revisited or recently discovered. They will mainly focus on families, community engagement or environmental sustainability, but not necessarily.

Strengths-based approaches

Quit Putting People in Boxes from Leading Differently – an asset-based approach to leadership

Why Positive Education from the International Positive Education Network – should well-being be taught in school?

Families

Private schools show same results as public schools from UQ News

Community engagement

The Small Habit That Could Save the World from Raptitude.com – reconsidering our default attitude towards strangers

Community organising aims to win back civil society’s rightful place by Amanda Tattersall via The Conversation – The Sydney Alliance and community organising

Sustainability

Climate change: Embed the social sciences in climate policy by David Victor via Nature – a call for the IPCC to overhaul how it engages with the social sciences.

One from my vaults
