Bringing Community to the Table - Revisited

Posted on February 9, 2015
By Zoe Fleming

In 2011, Paul Born was interviewed by Hildy Gottlieb. The interview was Bringing Community to the Table. This is one of the first interviews I remember of Paul's.

Paul_Born02It really helped to frame my thinking on having the right people at the table. It also helps to explain the need to bring all sectors together to create necessary change. The challeges we have in society: poverty; education; access to recreation; crime; green space reduction; or any others on the list, belong to all of us. The challenges are all of ours not "theirs" and everything is in "our backyards". We need to work together.

"All of us are everyday community people" - Hildy Gottlieb
