- Bruce Goldstein is Associate Professor in the Program in Environmental Design and the Program in Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. He examines how can communities combine forces to adapt to social and ecological challenges and foster transformational change. He pursues this question through research partnerships with learning networks, which enable place-based learning and system-wide adaptation to innovate solutions that are site-specific and applicable network-wide. He partners with netweavers who are attempting to promote positive change across critical social and ecological thresholds. His research is qualitative and interpretive, and applies the principles of participatory action research.
