ASSET-BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
BUILDING, TOGETHER, ON WHAT WE HAVE
- One of the most useful things we can do in our communities, towns, cities & country is to focus on what we *do* have, and build change from those starting-point assets.
- Methodologies exist to help us identify these starting-point "assets" (people, groups, places, laws, tools, resources .. anything) and to kick off initiatives locally to build change from those starting points.
- Let's get good at this; begin, learn lessons, share, improve; and make real change in our communities, towns, cities and right across Ireland - starting with what we already have.
- This is a collaboration-space waiting to be filled; an opportunity to contribute, and to lead locally.
- It's a new initiative, and it’s up to the community, the city and county, businesses, institutions, nonprofits, families & individuals to make this happen. We need your energy, ideas - and action!
- We need to build awareness and engagement; so, please share this idea, page & platform on Social Media. Promote it locally in your community. Tell your employer, school, colleagues, friends. Shout it loud!
- And other than that - just dive in, let's see what we can do, together. To begin, connect with the the community (see the Community button, below). Let’s get started!
