Sustainable community development: from what's wrong to what's strong | Cormac Russell | TEDxExeter
How can we help people to live a good life? Instead of trying to right what's wrong within a community Cormac argues we need to start with what's strong. We need to help people discover what gifts they have and to use those gifts to enrich those around them. -- At TEDxExeter 2016 our speakers encapsulated the idea of movement, that grappling with humanity’s toughest questions requires first a vision, a dream, and then action.

Community Engagement: City of Canning (Australia)
This video explains what engaging the community means at the city of Canning (Australia). Your Say Canning: http://yoursaycanning.com.au/. We want the City of Canning to be a fun, safe and liveable place. In order to make decisions about what that might be, we need to work together and listen to each other. When we do this well we call this effective community engagement. Let’s talk about just what that is... When a decision needs to be made about something that affects us, we often have different ideas about what that should be. We all have different wants and needs. One of our fundamental human needs is participation, which is to have a say in decisions that affect us. So what is community engagement anyway? Well, there are two really important parts to effective community engagement: speaking and listening. It is also not one person speaking and drowning out all other people’s voices. Great community engagement is a two way conversation. A dialogue with a variety of voices heard and expressed,. In effective community engagement you are not sure what the outcome might be when you go into it because the conversation will influence the outcome. It requires speaking, listening and understanding on all sides of the conversation. At the City of Canning, our vision is to become an engaging organisation that understands community values and priorities. We recognise the need to listen and work together to co-create sustainable solutions and a City that we are proud of. Public input into Council decision-making processes is key to good governance. It recognises the collective knowledge and capacity within the community to produce better outcomes. We want to hear from the community how we can improve or create a services, facilities and infrastructure. In setting the vision and direction for the City, we want to hear our community’s values and priorities now and into the future, as in the case of the Strategic Community Plan. We will also engage the community under Legislative requirements such as the Local Government Act, Planning and Development Act and Local Planning Scheme. To better engage our community, we have chosen five guiding principles that will keep us on the right track: • Inclusiveness and accessibility • Integrity • Communication and information • Evaluation and adaptability • Timeliness So now I'll tell you a little bit more about what we mean with each of these... 1. Inclusiveness and accessibility – we need to ensure people affected by, or who have an interest in a decision will have an opportunity to have a say. 2. Integrity – this means being open to diverse views and being honest about the level of engagement being used. For example, is the decision really open to being influenced through this conversation or are we really just providing information about a decision that has already been made? We also need to be open about how community input has influenced the final decision. 3. Communication and information – it is important to provide people with the information so they can fully participate and be clear about why and how they can be part of it. We need to make sure they are informed about the kind of constraints we have, for example financial costs or future predictions or situations such as climate change or fewer resources and growing demands upon the limited resources of our planet. 4. Evaluation and adaptability – we need to learn from our community engagement projects, from what really worked and what didn't. It's important that we document these and continually look for new ways to have a conversation with our community in a way that they want to participate. 5. Timeliness – we should allow enough time to plan and engage so that the conversation can actually have an impact on the decision when appropriate and engagement is done at the right time. For example not during school holidays, Christmas break or at a time when a decision has already been made. So these are principles that shall guide us in our community engagement. To find out more you can read our Community Engagement Strategy (which is what we want to achieve), our Policy (how we will achieve it), the Plan (a template to help prepare and do engagement) and our Guide (which is for when you need a little help).

Community Based Strategic Planning
"Community Based Strategic Planning" will offer a framework for strategic planning that is inextricably rooted in the community served, whether that's a political subdivision, a college or university campus, a school district, or a corporation. Participants will gain hands on experience with tools they can use to create an effective, useful plan that uses library strengths to address authentic, rather than assumed, community needs and desires. The workshop will cover four vital steps in successful strategic planning: • Assessment. What does the library do well now? What services need more investment? Which services can be retired? • Community understanding. How do we develop a deep understanding of the way our community lives now? What are the best projections for the community’s future? • Bedrock beliefs. What are the library’s guiding principles? How do we negotiate principles, outcomes, and techniques to focus on what’s truly important? • Implementation. How do we apply library skills and expertise to the needs and desires in the community? How do we move from planning to reality? The goal of the workshop is to provide a simple framework that can be scaled and adapted for a variety of libraries, in communities large or small. And there's no law that says we can’t have some fun along the way!

A radical & successful approach to working with Indigenous communities | Denise Hagan | TEDxBrisbane
Traditional western models for 'helping' Aboriginal communities don't work. By turning these models upside down in favour of building authentic relationships and on-the-ground community engagement, Denise Hagan and the Puuya Foundation are empowering a remote Aboriginal community in Cape York, Australia, and delivering successful, life-changing programs. Denise Hagan works at the complicated intersection where the very sincere desire to help remote Aboriginal communities held by governments, philanthropists and nonprofits alike, clashes with entrenched, misinformed and western-centric attitudes to engagement, empowerment, funding and solutions. Invited by the community elders to the remote Aboriginal town of Lockhart River in the far north of Cape York, Denise was meant to stay three months. She ended up staying five and a half years and is currently living in Lockhart River again. Denise came to develop a deep understanding of the multi-generational poverty and disadvantage faced by the community, the strength and determination of the people living there, and the cold hard fact that despite good intentions, the standard government procedures for programs and funding would not deliver the solutions needed.

What are your organization's dreams for the future? On the practical side, are you worried about the future? What are the critical issues you face? Have you taken the time to think big and think real about where your organization will be in one year, three years, five years? Does your nonprofit have a shared vision and a roadmap for getting there? Participants will learn key elements in a successful strategic planning process: being inclusive and proactive in engaging stakeholders building consensus and "ownership" making data-driven decisions ensuring measurability and accountability being future-focused You'll also see how the process worked for one community college and how college stakeholders engage in reviewing, modifying, and updating the plan each year.

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Career Planning
Apple CEO Tim Cook discusses the 25 year plan he developed while a student at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and why you should veer away from such plans. Cook spoke as part of his class reunion at the school.(www.fuqua.duke.edu) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- APPLE CEO AND FUQUA ALUM TIM COOK TALKS LEADERSHIP AT DUKE Tim Cook spoke to students and alums when he returned for his 25th reunion "Explore everything. Push the corners of your mind. Just get on this kind of continual learning roller coaster and see what happens." This was among the advice Apple CEO Tim Cook shared with students at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business on April 26th. Back on campus for his 25-year reunion, Cook took part in an hour-long dialogue with Fuqua Dean Bill Boulding and the students in a jam-packed Geneen Auditorium buzzing with excitement to hear from the leader of the world's most profitable company. The Apple CEO has embarked on a career far different than he had envisioned after graduating from Fuqua's Evening Executive MBA program in 1988. "For me the journey was not predictable at all. You have to find your own north star and stay with your north star." As 450 Daytime MBA students prepared to graduate, Cook advised the students to heed Abraham Lincoln's words of wisdom: "I will prepare and someday my chance will come." Cook shared the three keys to his leadership at Apple: people, strategy, and execution. "If you get those three right the world is a great place." Students were able to get a unique glimpse into Cook's motivation, inspiration and leadership role models. Raised in the south and a witness to racial injustice, Cook described his admiration for Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Junior's bravery in risking their lives to fight for what they believed in. He has just three photos in his office: two of Kennedy and one of King. Cook was asked when to follow strict principles of business theory and when to break the rules. His response stressed the importance of risks and learning from failure. "You should rarely follow the rules. What Fuqua teaches you so well is how to learn and how to collaborate. Write your own rules." This message resonated with first-year MBA student Shelby Hall. "I know this follows Steve Jobs' belief that Apple creates products which consumers didn't ever know existed," she said. "It was interesting to hear Tim Cook's perspective on how we should balance writing our own rules while applying the foundations of business taught here at Fuqua." Cook also spoke about some of his recollections from Fuqua. "The people made it an incredible experience. It was great for me to see how bright people approached solutions in different ways." First-year MBA student Juan Danzilo says Cook's willingness to share his experiences shows a deep commitment to Fuqua. "Tim Cook's presence reflects Fuqua's sense of community. His humility and eloquence is admirable. It certainly was a unique opportunity for MBA students to hear from such an inspirational leader."

BALLE Webinar: Building Healthy Communities Through Local Economic Strategies
*Originally held and recorded July 12, 2016* View and download webinarslides at: https://bealocalist.org/sites/default/files/future_of_health_is_local_webinar_slides.pdf Over the past several decades, studies have shown that up to 80% of human health is determined by social factors such as income, housing quality, and education, rather than just by the availability or quality of medical care. In response, health care policies are now being directed toward investments in prevention at the community level. As hospitals and other health care providers begin to understand their capacity to use more organizational assets to enhance human health and invest in their local communities, new strategic alliances are emerging. BALLE’s recently published field guide The Future of Health is Local, produced with support from Kaiser Permanente, illuminates the connections between local economic strategies and the social determinants of health. The field guide shows that the tools that work to build healthy local economies are the same as what is working to improve health in people and communities. The discussion will cover: • The value of strategic alignment between local stakeholders in the community development and health care sectors • Community benefit policies and emerging practices • Specific strategies to leverage local systems This webinar is designed for: • Healthcare investors • Community development agencies • Healthcare providers • Community-based organizations • Local business networks Speakers: Tyler Norris, VP Total Health Partnerships, Kaiser Permanente Yanique Redwood, President & CEO, Consumer Health Foundation Kimber Lanning, Executive Director, Local First Arizona Moderator: Michelle Long, Executive Director, BALLE

What is PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT? What does PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT mean? PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT meaning - PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT definition - PARTICIPATORY DEVELOPMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Participatory development (PD) seeks to engage local populations in development projects. Participatory development has taken a variety of forms since it emerged in the 1970s, when it was introduced as an important part of the "basic needs approach" to development. Most manifestations of PD seek “to give the poor a part in initiatives designed for their benefit” in the hopes that development projects will be more sustainable and successful if local populations are engaged in the development process. PD has become an increasingly accepted method of development practice and is employed by a variety of organizations. It is often presented as an alternative to mainstream “top-down” development. There is some question about the proper definition of PD as it varies depending on the perspective applied. Two perspectives that can define PD are the "Social Movement Perspective" and the "Institutional Perspective": The "Social Movement Perspective" defines participation as the mobilization of people to eliminate unjust hierarchies of knowledge, power, and economic distribution. This perspective identifies the goal of participation as an empowering process for people to handle challenges and influence the direction of their own lives. Empowerment participation is when primary stakeholders are capable and willing to initiate the process and take part in the analysis. This leads to joint decision making about what should be achieved and how. While outsiders are equal partners in the development effort, the primary stakeholders are primus inter pares, i.e., they are equal partners with a significant say in decisions concerning their lives. Dialogue identifies and analyzes critical issues, and an exchange of knowledge and experiences leads to solutions. Ownership and control of the process rest in the hands of the primary stakeholders. The "Institutional Perspective" defines participation as the reach and inclusion of inputs by relevant groups in the design and implementation of a development project. The “Institutional Perspective” uses the inputs and opinions of relevant groups, or stakeholders in a community, as a tool to achieve a pre-established goal defined by someone external to the community involved. The development project, initiated by an activist external to the community involved, is a process by which problem issues in a community can be divided into stages, and this division facilitates assessment of when and to what degree a participatory approach is relevant. From an institutional perspective, there are four key stages of a development project: Research Stage, Design Stage, Implementation Stage, Evaluation Stage that are defined in later sections of this article. The institutional perspective can also be referred to as a "Project-Based Perspective". Advocates of PD emphasize a difference between participation as “an end in itself”, and participatory development as a “process of empowerment” for marginalized populations. This has also been described as the contrast between valuing participation for intrinsic rather than purely instrumental reasons. In the former manifestation, participants may be asked to give opinions without any assurance that these opinions will have an effect or may be informed of decisions after they have been made. In the latter form, proponents assert that PD tries to “foster and enhance people’s capability to have a role in their society’s development”. Participatory development employed in particular initiatives often involves the process of content creation. For example, UNESCO's Finding a Voice Project employs ICT for development initiatives. Local content creation and distribution contributes to the formation of local information networks. This is a bottom-up approach that involves extensive discussions, conversations, and decision-making with the target community. Community group members create content according to their capacities and interests. This process facilitates engagement with information and communication technology (ICT) with the goal of strengthening individual and social development. This participatory content creation is an important tool for poverty reduction strategies and creating a digitally inclusive knowledge society.

Because this program was highly successful, we were fortunate enough to replicate the same module in three backward villages - Neemli, Palasli & Lapala of Tijara block, district Alwar Rajasthan. Sukarya wishes to replicate this model village concept in at least 30 villages of Rajasthan and Haryana for which we look up to benevolent sponsors and corporate houses to step forward with funding in order to achieve this goal.

Cambodia: - Village voices guide national strategy to provide life essentials
In villages throughout Cambodia, local councilors and communities are telling officials how the government can better meet their basic needs, holding public meetings that are proving instrumental for government efforts to raise people's standards of living. These meetings are part of a six-year local governance support project sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the European Union (EU), finishing in 2011, which has organized forums in all eight regions of Cambodia, including its 23 provinces, the capital and more than 70 districts. "Strengthening local governance means, looking at the demand and supply sides of accountability mechanisms and improving the ability of officials to be more responsive to local residents' concerns," said Patrick Duong, coordinator of the UNDP/EU Cambodia project Strengthening Democratic and Decentralized Local Governance. "These forums offer citizens and local councilors a place to voice their concerns and services needs directly to local and government representatives, and have been essential to strengthening grassroots democracy and improving people's lives in Cambodia." In July 2010, villagers in the southwestern province of Preah Sihanouk made their way through torrential downpours to participate in a community planning meeting, where they brainstormed projects to provide and improve schools, roads, wells and latrines. "Whatever suggestions or concerns you have, or what kind of development projects you want to see coming to our neighborhood, please just raise your hand and speak freely," said local council chief Yoan Chhieng at the meeting of about 35 men and women. "As we are currently putting together a community development plan for 2011, we want to hear what the people have to say." In Mr. Chhieng's commune of O'Chrov, only about 10 percent of the 1,000 families have latrines. There is only one health centre, which also serves the neighboring commune, thus providing for a combined population of 2,000 families. He says involving villagers in the dialogue is essential to building trust and mutual understanding. Across Cambodia, community meetings like this are helping to decentralize decision-making and better identify what the real needs of local residents are. Based on their information and concerns, authorities can then draw up priorities and plans more effectively. That decentralization process thereby fosters a bottom-up approach to identifying development needs, which can then be addressed through top-down decisions by administrative districts, divided into communes and quarters (sangkat) that are then further divided into villages. Despite significant economic progress in the past decade, Cambodia relies heavily on external aid for development. People living in the countryside still lack access to basic necessities like roads, clean water, and sanitation. "Our needs concern us -- we cannot just leave it up to the commune chief," said Ms. Heng Vipheak, a 48-year-old resident of Ream village, in Ream commune, about 35 km from O'Chrov. "Sometimes he may have 10 ideas for developing the village, but we the people may have even more." The list of wants and expectations at community meetings is usually quite long. Local officials have to go through several steps before they are ready to present projects and bid for funding from the central government, development partners and nongovernmental organizations. Even before funding has been secured, however, fostering a strong relationship with local communities has been a crucial step in reforming local governance to implement those projects effectively. The Cambodian government's National Strategic Development Plan (2006-2010), and its update to that plan for the period of 2009 to 2013, acknowledge that decentralization of political power and de-concentration of administrative authority are prerequisites for poverty reduction. In 2003, Cambodia set national benchmarks with reference to the Millennium Development Goals, committing to halve levels of poverty and hunger by 2015, among other targets. UNDP has supported Cambodia's decentralization and de-concentration reforms since 1993, when it assisted with the repatriation, resettlement and reintegration of refugees from the camps on the border with Thailand.
