Collective Routes is an enquiry-driven collective committed to researching existing approaches, experimenting with new practices, and producing grounded knowledge in social change.

As a collective, we bring together socially engaged practitioners in participatory research and collaborative learning across the fields of Youth Development, Social Entrepreneurship, Organizational Culture, Culture for development, and Social Policies.

What We Do


We produce knowledge and evidence, mainly through using participatory research methods with people and communities to profoundly understand their social realities.


We design and provide participatory learning experiences to strengthen the capacities of both individuals, organizations and communities to advance their impact towards social change.


We design and facilitate collaborative experiences to engage people in meaningful conversations to allow them to reflect and learn from their previous practices and enlighten their future ones.


We provide consultancy support to development organizations in research development, learning design, and facilitation. Our work includes, but not limited to, conducting participatory evaluations, delivering capacity building programs, facilitating participatory action research, evaluating and creating organizational culture, designing and evaluating social policies, and facilitating technical workshops and scale-large events.
