Knowledge mobilization: sharing snacks and research results in Ahmedabad, India

This research focuses on the everyday livelihood experiences and daily navigations of women doing waste picking work in Ahmedabad, India in the context of on-going changes to the governance of waste in the country. During my second trip to the field, my interpreter and I held a series of 'workshops' in participants' workplaces and residential areas with interested waste-picking women living/working in these areas to share the preliminary results of the study, talk about common issues, provide information for local resources to support the women, and to chat over snacks and chai. We conducted several of these sessions in 12 different areas of the city with 4-40 participants per group, most being quite informally organized. This photo was taken during one session inside of an urban slum area in the common area directly in front of the toilets.
