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

Vibrant Communities supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through two learning networks, Cities Reducing Poverty and Cities Deepening Community. A Vibrant Community can be created once the human, social and economic cost of poverty are significantly reduced. Together, these cities/regions aspire to reduce poverty in 100 cities.
