Welcome to ABCD Europe

ABCD Europe is a place to discuss, share and deepen ways to apply the principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) and other strengths-based approaches.

The idea was hatched at the first ABCD European summit in Liverpool, where we were joined by 150 ABCD enthusiasts from the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland.

Today we know that there are enthusiasts across Europe who recognise that there is more to a good life than services and more at stake than money.

Please let us know if you have any ideas for growing this community - we want it to be a place where all are welcome to share and learn from each other.

Warm regards,
Cormac Russell, International ABCD Institute faculty
