In this paper, the social dimension, characterising democratic and process-related ways of working with a critical perspective will be in focus. Action Research today is a global phenomenon and can be seen as a product of the world of flows and brings with it a democratic imperative to challenge oppression and nurture and sustain a social justice. A course in action research has been given to teachers. A survey study shows that 80% of respondents indicated that they are still doing action research in their settings four years after completion. The most interesting result is that many of the teachers expressed that they have taken a leading role in the early childhood setting, either as leaders within their own or other settings. In both scenarios they are leaders for their colleagues. In the results it is obvious that the teachers gained personall and professional knowledge but also political can be mentioned in the way they acted for a sustainable development of their work.
