What is social action?

According to Max Weber, ‘Social Action’ isindividual or group behaviour that involves interaction with other individuals or groups, especially organised action towards social reform.– (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/social-action)

To define Max Weber’s Social Action theory, I will introduce the small, yet aptly named organisation  ‘Villages in Action’. This organisation “…is Devon’s rural touring scheme. Working with volunteer promoters in each of our villages, we bring world class performers and professionally-run arts workshops to Devon doorsteps.” – In other words this group gives locals the opportunity to get involved with developing entertainments in their surrounding area. It is a prime example of action toward social reform.
