Merging of Knowledge
Before 2002 ATD Fourth World ran two experimental programs on the merging of knowledge and practices called the Fourth World University and Fourth World Partnerships. Though they are now ended, a group of leaders and participants who were formerly part of those programs meet up once every three months to promote the sharing of knowledge and ideas between those living in poverty and professionals and academics.
With the overall ethical objective of the merging of knowledge and experience with those living in poverty, the group devised guidelines which include how to plan and implement best practices.
