Abstract

Democracy is currently increasingly criticised for not representing the interests of citizens (Institute of Governance, 2005) or not taking into account the social justice and environmental concerns that span national boundaries (Singer, 2002). What is knowledge? Who decides? How can we prevent losing knowledge? How can knowledge sharing be facilitated in the interests of sustainable futures? The contribution attempts to address some of these questions. The discussion is premised on the idea that there are many bodies of knowledge and that the challenge is to ask questions that will enable the appropriate knowledge to be matched contextually to a task, challenge or problem (Aristotle in Nicomachean Ethics, Irwin, 1985).
