Empowering Communities – Webinar 2
This is the second webinar of a series of three looking at grassroots community, development and democracy.
In this second 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.
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’. Where only needs and problems have currency only services and programmes result, this webinar will explore the theory and practice of capacity based citizen led action for community building and social change.
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.
