Governance From Below: Can Children Lead the Way?

About the Book

This version of the book is 95% complete, containing all chapters but needing some editing and layout improvements. We look forward to your comments as soon as possible! Written by authors with widely different cultural backgrounds, Governance From Below will stretch your thinking. It calls on everyone to think about new ways of governance that address issues at every scale from small neighborhoods to the whole earth. Involvement of children is key. The book introduces “mutual leadership,” a new concept in which children and adults strongly complement each other's capacities to enjoy living in harmony with others.
