Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – A Coalition for Comprehensive Democracy is an initative to bring together people and associations from various ideologies and streams to engage in dialogue on issues of various dimensions of democracy. Such dimensions include politics, ecology, gender, social justice, economy and culture.
The roots of the Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam is in South Asia, where the concept (meaning the world is a family) has been part of the culture for thousands of years. Recently in India and Finland Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam associations have been formed.
The Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam Initiative engages actively with the the World Social Forum. In practice this means taking part in local, national, regional and global social forums as organiser of events and information agency.
