This article defines transformative ecology, which combines James Kelly’s (1968) ecological theory and Leonard Jason’s (1997) transformational theory. The first illustrates the flow of resources across social settings and between social actors; and the second introduces a historical perspective that shows how decisions regarding critical choice points have the potential to either block or foster social change efforts. Joining the two theories in one produces a robust framework for conceptualising and implementing ecologically sustainable social and community interventions.
