Needs to Assets: A New Approach to Community Building
December 8, 2017
12:00-1:00 p.m. EST
Guest: John McKnight
In this webinar, we will explore a paradigm shift in understanding the methods that empower people in neighbourhoods. Instead of focusing on neighbourhood needs, we will explore the importance of neighbourhood capacities and assets as the essential focus of effective local community building. Together, we will identify the basic principles and methods of an asset-based approach, as well as the keys to implementing this strategy for creating more vibrant communities.
