Training Webinar - Changing Communities – Value Community & Make A Difference

  • May 15, 2013 · 2:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

In this webinar Cormac Russell will focus on how - by identifying, connecting and mobilising assets - citizens can change their communities from inside out, and use the power they build by doing so, to hold government to account.

This is the first of two webinars that we are holding in May and that addresses community and change. In this webinar we will look at how communities can both be empowered and have more control over their own environment through an understanding of the assets that already exist in their own community.

Asset based Community Development recognises that the capacities of citizens, local associations, the physical resources that surround them and their local economic exchanges tend to go untapped in the current system which all too often views low income communities as ‘backwaters of pathology’.

For local authorities and service agencies there is often a tendency to view communities only through needs, problems and service provision.

This webinar will explore the theory and practice of capacity based citizen led action for community building and social change, and the way that local authorities and service providers can enable positive communities through and asset based approach.

Cormac Russell is a faculty member of the Asset Based Community Development Institute and works extensively in the UK, as well as Sub Saharan Africa, North America and Australia.

This is a training webinar and is only available to fully paid up members of GlobalNet21.

    Very interesting. There is a whole sub-culture going on amongst the activists around some aspects of the Sharing Economy. Folks share stuff that they don't use for free via physical locations or via the Internet sites that specialise in that.
    Friends in and around the Brighton/Lewes area are heavily into this.
    Is this a topic that you plan to discuss at all?
