So imagine this: we have Community Builders doing a fine job, supporting citizens at neighbourhood level to identify, connect and mobilise assets; creating a shared vision for the future. Now what?
Now we run into red tape, power plays, the neighbourhood plans meet resistance, people become deflated, morale saps and we're back to square one. Well it doesn't need to pan out that way, though it very well might if we're not strategic.
So how can Agents of Change outside communities support community builders and the communities they serve?
is an attempt to articulate some useful stepping stones for organisations who want to do more than simply 'do no harm', albeit that that is of course the crtical starting point.
Let me know how we can enhance this, it's very much a work in progress.
