RSA Thursday

With shrinking budgets, the global social development agenda is going through a process of rethinking and reformulation. 

Working with some of the poorest and most disenfranchised people, the self-help movement in India reveals a new philosophy and practical approaches needed for a changed paradigm. Achieving sustainable social change calls for a new set of values and systems of working. 

Join Carl Poll, UK Coordinator of the International Chapter of Manavodaya Institute of Participatory Development as he explains how shared values are achieved through self-awareness, dialogue and reflection, and systems are adapted according to local needs and culture, empowering communities to effect their own change.

Chair: Steve Broome, director of research, RSA.
