The Power of Community

Workshop Brief Description

The power of community is the idea that people should have a say over the places in which they live and the services they use, and that they have knowledge, skills and assets to improve their own lives and the world. Community life can provide emotional support, access to resources and networks, exchange of knowledge and skills, friendships, and collaboration. Community can also enhance personal and collective identity, self-esteem, and willingness to take on the world.
