Participatory Action Research (PAR) is a study method that allows researchers and participants to look into specific topics or problems through an iterative cycle of research, dialogue, action, and reflection, using a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques. At the core of PAR resides the recognition of the value of local and traditional knowledge through direct involvement of community members in the research process.

Photovoice is a participatory photography methodology that uses participatory photography to empower participants to reflect on their personal experiences around a research question and share their perspectives through storytelling and focus groups. In this sense, participants act as co-researchers by interpreting the meaning behind their stories for the researchers. providing a participatory framework for the elicitation and representation of social and cultural knowledge.

In this workshop, participants will learn about how to design and prepare a photovoice project, as well as to analyze related qualitative and quantitative data related using a mixed-methods software, using environmental justice data.
