Live & Learn Model

Live & Learn strives to develop Community Development and Education models that have the capacity to reduce poverty and promote environmental sustainability. Our models are practically designed to strengthen participation and learning, use community resources and knowledge, promote innovation and simplicity, and benefit marginalised people. Most importantly the models are easy to replicate and take to scale.

One model that is commonly used to reduce poverty and promote sustainable development is the MAIA Model for Action and Learning. MAIA will first and foremost aim to manage natural resource-based conflict and promote ecosystems-based dialogue and community sustainability. MAIA is a four-stage conservation and conflict management model that focuses on (i) Mobilization, (ii) Anticipation, (iii) Innovation and (iv) Action.
