Community Engagement - A Foundational Practice of Community Change

Sylvia Cheuy has released her new paper about community engagement. Community change initiatives are often set against complex and systematic problems - problems that cannot be solved in isolation and without authentic support from community stakeholders.

In 'Community Engagement: A Foundational Practice of Community Change', Sylvia discusses what community engagement actually is and how it is the core idea for change.  She also explores why the nurturing of community ownership and leadership in any change effort is essential for its long-term sustainability and success. This paper will give you different perspectives to consider and questions that will spark ideas.

This is the first paper in the 2018 Community Change Festival Series, highlighting each of the 5 interconnected practices essential for community change.
