The Ocean in a Drop - A Perspective on Youth Development: Creating Ownership of Common Spaces

Ms Ashraf Patel is a co-founder of PRAVAH, and the current Director of PRAVAH Learning Voyages, which offers real world learning opportunities to youth facilitators and organisations. Ms Ashraf Patel presented the case for youth to be part of development agenda-setting as well as critical issues and case studies of successful youth development programmes. One of the topics she discussed was the “fifth space”. PRAVAH began talking of a fifth space instead of active citizenship to denote a space that connected the self to society.
