The network comprises of individuals, Action Researchers, Academicians and Development Activists who are committed to Participatory Approaches. PLANET KERALA believes that Participation is basic to humanization, democratization, development and the dynamism that reinforces human rights, social justice and environmental sustainability.
Moreover we understand that Participation is the activity of acquiring "Right, Control and Ownership" by the people (stakeholders) over the process of producing knowledge and the product i.e., "knowledge" itself. Hence, production of knowledge from the life situation by the people/stakeholders is the foundation of participation.
