Dialogues of knowledge

Los Diálogos of Knowledge (Dofk) is a methodological approach to fostering democratic engagement and decision-making processes within communities, rooted in Mayan oral traditions and storytelling

This project seeks to provide an alternative methodology to ensure that those most affected by inequities are actively engaged in shaping policies and solutions. What makes the Dialogues of Knowledge so important is that they emphasize the importance of participation in democratic processes by scaling these conversations through different spaces and at all levels of government.
