Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) Canada
Community of Practice

Next Meeting

Evaluating an ABCD process therefore requires a move away from traditional top down summative
and formative evaluation processes that are features of traditional ways of evaluating community
initiatives. Instead an ABCD approach moves towards a developmental and emancipatory learning
process. On our next call we will be diving into a discussion on how to evaluate ABCD process.

Date: Wednesday October 28 at 1-2 pm EDT
