The Breakwell Institute is an action research organisation dedicated to the generation and application of knowledge. Knowledge that enables young people to seek a pattern of life coherent in its material, intellectual and spiritual dimensions. We pursue this aim in a mode of learning through participatory action research. Underlying our programs is a conviction that all people, regardless of nation of origin, educational level, or circumstance have a part to play in building a united and prosperous world. Our programs offer an approach to learning that seeks to empower participants to act as protagonists in their own education, family life and neighbourhood or city.
