Hosting conversations to strengthen India's democratic process and to raise India to the power of Y. I work in the area rights and participation of children and the leadership of young people. I would like to be India's leading voice on the art and culture of listening.

Have listened to thousand of children over the last 23 years as a UNICEF Communications Specialist posted in two of India's most populous states. I am extremely interested in inclusion issues and work closely with two large inclusion networks in the country.

Augustine, great to see you here and welcome you here! Please, when you have the time, load a photo and mention our time in Thailand under the first question so the rest of the community knows you know AoH, and have a look at the conversation forums that are in action, that's where we can contribute to each other. I hope you find great community in the Art of Hosting network! And I hope I hear of your new ideas and great communication success soon!
