CASE STUDY | Becoming an Asset Based Community Development City

Case Studies, ABCD, Neighbourhoods

Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) is a theory that looks at the gifts and assets of people that exist within a neighbourhood allowing them to respond to, and create local opportunities. ABCD’s emphasis is on strengths, connections, citizen leadership, and the recognition that individual gifts become powerful when they are connected. This case study outlines the collaboration between neighbours and the City of Edmonton in the development of an Asset-Based Community Development initiative

By Vibrant Communities

Vibrant Communities supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through four learning networks: Ending Poverty, Deepening Community, Building Youth Futures and Climate Transitions. Our belief is that when we are effective in strengthening community capacity to engage citizens, lead collaboratively, deepen community and reduce poverty, our work contributes to the building of peace and more equitable society.
