Co-Design and Community Participation
“We must never merely….provide people with programs which have little or nothing to do with their own preoccupations, doubts, hopes, and fears… It is not our role to speak to people about our own view of the world, nor to attempt to impose that view on them, but rather to dialogue with the people about their view and ours.”
Paulo Freire (Brazilian educator), 1968
