Student Participation in Activities with Influential Outcomes: Issues of Gender, Individuality and Collective Thinking in Swedish Secondary Schools
This article examines how students engaged in the democratic processes involved in the formation of an action group intended to influence their school by making it more environmentally friendly. The goal of this article is to acquire greater understanding of influential processes in relation to gender and both individualistically and collectively oriented ideas. These ideas include understanding of which students participate in such groups, the role gender plays in the likelihood of a student participating, how they act, and their experiences of participation. The article concludes that the group represents an arena for both individual and collective performance in which both individual and collective ideas are reflected.
