Welcome to IFAL

IFAL believes that action learning has the potential to help people create a better world: inclusive, fair, just, sustainable and equal and free of racism. We want to respond to the events of 2020 that are galvanising people around the world to examine power, privilege and injustice. We are driven to take action, influenced by IFAL’s core values of curiosity, authenticity and collaboration.

In the spirit of this curiosity, inquiry and action, IFAL intends to convene a series of global conversations to explore questions such as:

How can action learning help?

What might action learning’s contribution be at the individual level as well as at the systemic level?

What in action learning’s origins might hold it / us back?

We will be holding our next global dialogue to explore these questions and about how Action Learning can help create this better world on:


Global Dialogue Series are free and open to all IFAL's current members.  If you wish to take part and are not currently an IFAL member, please visit our membership area here in order to complete a simple membership registration form.

IFAL is an organisation for those who practice or who are simply interested in knowing more about Action Learning.

Through sharing, learning, discussion, debate across the globe, it is the home of development in all things Action Learning.

We run events and promote discussion around action learning and are developing new  programmes.

Stay in touch and join our growing global community around all things Action Learning!
