WEBINAR - The Rise and Fall and Rise Again of Community
Anyone with an interest in community building may find this interesting. It's free.
In the last 30 years the idea of community and community building has been under attack but recently there has been resurgence as people understand in times of turmoil and austerity self reliant communities are vital to the health of the nation. This resurgence has taken many forms.
This Webinar looks at one area of resurgence and charts the development of Asset Based Community Development(ABCD), exploring its theoretical underpinning, which suggests that the decline of community and community capacity transpired alongside the growth of free markets and public service professionalisation.
We look at the consequences of this to citizens and communities and track the recent shifts back to mobilising community and its assets through ABCD.
