Neighborocracy learning session
Joseph Rathinam

1. I have written Two books one in Tamil and One in English on Neighborocracy
2. I was editing and publishing a Tamil monthly magazine “Children Parliaments”
3. I have trained thousands of organisations, field workers, teachers and children in Children Parliaments
4. I am the international Convener for Neighborocracy.
5. I am promoting Neighborocracy globally for the past 27 years with my training and networking Children Parliaments and Youth Parliaments at various levels.
6. I have been interviewed by various television channels on my work.

Learn from Joseph Rathinam how Neighborocracy has been a tool to organize enormous numbers of neighborhoods in India to solve difficult problems and build beautiful solutions, block by block. Learn how UK partners aim to adapt it to their context, and dream about how these frameworks could support your own mutual aid work.
