Your turn to share resources for building community in neighborhoods

in Best practices in community empowerment

Intermission in our Best practices in Community Empowerment series.

We’re gobsmacked by how much we’d already learned through this three-week experiment:

  1. There’s A BUNCH (technical term) of great stuff out there that we didn’t even know existed. And to think we thought we’d been paying attention.
  2. When you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s good to seek help from people who do.
  3. Good people who know stuff will share stuff they know.
  4. When people we trust give us advice, we pay attention.

So we’ve decided to take this experiment a little bit further. We’ve asked our friends to ask their friends. And we’re asking you, dear reader (Hi Mom!):

If someone came up to you and said: “I’d like to throw a block party (or launch a local website, or build a community garden, or start a social enterprise, or improve safety, or make an asset map, or whatever) what are the best 3 to 5 resources I should check out?”

What would you say?

To make it easier for you to make recommendations (and for us to publish them), we’ve developed this simple form (see the image below; you can either read it sideways, or click on it to go to the survey).

Thanks!

Next up: Kevin Harris of Neighbourhoods
