2020 Webinar Series Illinois (2)

Webinar 3 | Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD)

Streamed live on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 

The principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) are based upon more than three decades of applied research by John McKnight and John Kretzmann. ABCD creates a virtuous circle of community action by intentionally identifying, linking and growing the strengths within a neighbourhood or community. This workshop will introduce participants to the core principles of ABCD; share practical resources for incorporating the lens of ABCD into your community change efforts; and, share stories that illustrate how the community’s strengths and resources can be mobilized to support an array of shared priorities.
