Refreshing our purpose with Action Research journal Our purpose since inception with this international, peer-reviewed journal is to offer a forum for participative, action-oriented inquiry into questions that matter-questions relevant to people in the conduct of their lives, that enable them to flourish in their organizations and communities, and that evince a deep concern for the wider ecology. Our purpose has not changed. The world around the journal, however, has changed. Globally there is much to celebrate. Poverty rates are falling. We humans are living longer. The notion-if not always the practice-of human rights for all continues to expand. Yet, the 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming gives us 12 years before catastrophic environmental breakdown becomes our shared reality; moreover wealth and resources are increasingly concentrating, as highlighted by the 2016 World Social Science Report (ISSC, IDS, & UNESCO, 2016). Our local and global challenges are now far too important to leave it to the certified experts alone. Actions researcher are called to play an important role.
