This chapter considers the perspective of Jozef, Cardinal Cardijn (1882-1967) founder of the Young Christian Workers, who developed the concept of ‘see, judge act’ to enable young workers in the early twentieth century to identify problems in their local environment, places of work, and family life, which they could work together to resolve. The ‘See-Judge-Act’ Cardijn explained in 1962, was a way of training people to ‘discover, evaluate, and resolve their own problems and those of others’ through participation and action in public life.
