Knowledge for development is knowledge that everyone, in all communities, can share their ways of thinking about their worlds. We all have multiple ways of thinking which give us entry into our personal worlds, that is, our physical, socioeconomic, ethical, creative and empathetic worlds. Knowledge for development partnerships allow us to celebrate our diversity together, as individuals and as communities, towards a better world for all of us.
