We are immensely sad to announce the loss of our wonderful friend and colleague, Moira McLaughlin.  Moira has been a clear bright light in the Action Learning community for so many years and was the longest serving IFAL exec member.  She will be missed and mourned by all who knew her.

A PDF of the above tributes can be found here.  If you would like to add your own tribute to Moira then please email us at  Thank you.

Café IFAL is a brand new virtual discussion forum where Action Learning practitioners can share their experiences of using Action Learning in real situations. Whether you wish to present a piece of work you’ve delivered – the struggles and successes - or simply contribute to the debate, join us at Café IFAL.

The format of this virtual event includes a brief presentation of a particular piece of Action Learning practice, followed by open discussion where we share related experience and create opportunities to learn with and from each other.

We are offering Action Learning Across Time Zones as a way of connecting with our international members and potential IFAL members. 

Using our Zoom platform we hope to attract international groups (mainly to be conducted in English although we have options for sessions to be conducted in French as well). 

All facilitators are experienced Action Learning practitioners. and in order to provide global access to as many participants  as possible, we aim to initially hold sets across three time zones.
