"I want to express my strong gratitude for your work at AR+.  I have been reflecting on the changes that appeared in me-myself as a result of the action research I've done. What a big personal discovery!  I humbly aspire to submit an article about it, with results, for the Action Research journal. Our work accords well with the climate change transformations agenda. Thank you very much! "
