Principles of Community Development (Webinar)
 
24:55
This introductory webinar introduces EWB-USA members to our general approach to community development. EWB-USA projects are as much community development projects as they are engineering projects. While the engineering solutions to lack of clean water or lack of electricity for example are important, the more significant result of EWB-USA’s effort is a community that can sustainably meet its own needs, including sustaining the solution to their infrastructure needs. This webinar provides examples of how our project process exemplifies the principles our organization holds paramount in implementing our community programs. Subsequent webinars delve into greater detail into the community development process. Intended Audience: Chapter members, appropriate for showing at chapter meetings. Webinar Availability: On Demand Release Date: March, 2011 Program Length: 24:54 This program was originally recorded and hosted by Contract Solutions Group (CSG)

Sustainable community development: from what's wrong to what's strong | Cormac Russell | TEDxExeter
 
18:08
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. Video Production Chromatrope (http://chromatrope.co.uk/) Production Manager Andy Robertson (http://www.youtube.com/familygamertv) Cormac Russell is Managing Director of Nurture Development, the leading Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) organisation in Europe, and faculty member of the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University, Illinois. He works with local communities, NGOs and governments on asset-based community development and other strengths-based approaches, in four continents. Cormac served on the UK Government’s Expert Reference Group on Community Organising and Communities First during its term in 2011-12. His book “Asset Based Community Development (ABCD): Looking Back to Look Forward” was published in 2015. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

What is COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT? What does COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT mean?

What is COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT? What does COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT mean? COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT meaning - COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT definition - COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The United Nations defines community development as "a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems." It is a broad term given to the practices of civic leaders, activists, involved citizens and professionals to improve various aspects of communities, typically aiming to build stronger and more resilient local communities. Community development is also understood as a professional discipline, and is defined by the International Association for Community Development (www.iacdglobal.org), the global network of community development practitioners and scholars, as "a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes participative democracy, sustainable development, rights, economic opportunity, equality and social justice, through the organisation, education and empowerment of people within their communities, whether these be of locality, identity or interest, in urban and rural settings". Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people with the skills they need to effect change within their communities. These skills are often created through the formation of social groups working for a common agenda. Community developers must understand both how to work with individuals and how to affect communities' positions within the context of larger social institutions. Community development as a term has taken off widely in anglophone countries i.e. the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand and other countries in the Commonwealth of Nations. It is also used in some countries in Eastern Europe with active community development associations in Hungary and Romania. The Community Development Journal, published by Oxford University Press, since 1966 has aimed to be the major forum for research and dissemination of international community development theory and practice. Community development approaches are recognised internationally. These methods and approaches have been acknowledged as significant for local social, economic, cultural, environmental and political development by such organisations as the UN, WHO, OECD, World Bank, Council of Europe and EU.

Whether we are called to reach the unreached or disciple and mobilize among followers of Jesus; we are always entering communities. Community Development is often associated only with stereotypical Community Development Projects like water wells or agricultural projects. But actually, Community Development Principles are best practices on how to enter a community in a good way that preserves dignity, empowers and seeks to create ownership of new methods and ideas. Since mobilization is to the reached what evangelization is to the unreached and since we are always entering communities then community development principles can and should be applied to missions mobilization.

Community Planning Principles and Guidelines
 
21:58
Community development consists of a public participatory and usually interactive form of town or neighborhood planning and design in which diverse community members (often termed “stakeholders”) contribute toward formulation of the goals, objectives, planning, fund/resource identification and direction, planned project implementations and reevaluation of documented local planning policy. It is a logical “bottom-up” evolution of (formerly “top-down”) regional, city and urban planning in an era of plateaued or diminishing public resources, increasing local burdens and responsibilities and public activism. It often promotes public/private partnership as a means to harness physical development activities in support of community-defined goals.[1] At a minimum, it seeks community consensus for proposed allocations of scarce resources among competing demands. In more vigorous application, community members access a full gamut of planning tools, shaping and being shaped by shared understanding of a complex community information base, directly informing and guiding local plan content, influencing resulting development budgets, projects and thus future infrastructure and land uses, as well as helping coordinate the work of overlapping jurisdictions, levels of government, internal and adjacent communities and various providers, such as business associations, utilities and schools.

The Secrets of Successful Communities: Powerful Community Planning Principles
 
39:17
On Saturday, November 5, 2016, Ed McMahon, noted urban planner, addressed a packed house at the Rehoboth Beach Fire Hall. He spoke about a "sense of place": those elements that make a city or town different from any other. Whether coming here to live, work or vacation, people want to spend time in a special place like Rehoboth Beach, not one that looks like every other city. Sussex County provides a clear example of the difference uniqueness makes. Driving down Route One, you could be in any city in America. But once you cross the canal into our city, you know you are in a place unlike any other, with the special character we all love. Mr. McMahon, who holds the Charles E. Fraser Chair on Sustainable Development at the Urban Land Institute, has become well known across the country for his TED Talk and many writings on the important subjects related to building and preserving unique communities. We hope you will enjoy these videos and join us in the ongoing conversation about how to keep Rehoboth Beach special.

Recognizing community uniqueness is one of the five key principles of SANE care that should be considered when developing a SANE program. The five key principles are patient-centered care, trauma-informed care, evidence-based practice, recognition of community uniqueness, and a multidisciplinary approach. These key principles should guide the development and operation of SANE programs to ensure the provision of comprehensive care to sexual assault patients.

Art and Community Development: Michelle Sanders
 
01:13
Art has been called ‘the signature of civilizations’ and engaging in the arts offers space for individuals and communities to explore how we think about the world. The major in Visual Art gives attention to the visual arts, applying them to a variety of creative pursuits, including teaching. It offers students both theoretical and practical learning and is underpinned by the exploration of the relationship and interplay between creativity and Christian spirituality for students personally and as part of the community. Community Development is a very broad term that refers to a set of principles, practices and academic disciplines that seeks to engage in social change utilising the very dynamics that define community. As such, Community Development emphasises matters of justice, participation and empowerment such that individuals and collectives can access the means they need to affect positive change in their own communities. Such an approach to strengthening communities is found throughout the discipline areas of the Bachelor of Arts. This minor sequence, however, entails systematic study, skill development and applied learning to give increased expression to community development practices in a variety of vocational settings. The minor sequence offers students an exploration of the sociological perspectives that underpin these development perspectives as well as an appreciation of the principles that guide the practice of community development. Students will also develop skills in the research and analysis of social settings while growing their proficiency to nurture justice, empowerment, and affect positive change. Finally, the minor sequence offers an opportunity to consider the social implications of Christian spirituality – both as a critique and encouragement of past and present initiatives.

The principle behind the work of Ikhala Trust is to "sow" where people have already laid a foundation.

The seed for the Festival was planted when we heard about the ABCD Festival held in the UK in June 2015 but which had being promoted since 2014 and we thought why not bring people in South Africa who have been advocating and practicing ABCD together to learn and share with each other.

09-Community Development
 
06:43
In our world, where fortunes have been lost overnight, where property values have been depreciated, retirement plans challenged, and income opportunities lost, it is sometimes easy to forget the difficulties faced by those living in extreme poverty. While much progress has been made over the last thirty years in the effort to end extreme poverty, over one billion people of our world still live lives of hunger, sickness, desperation and despair! Children, dying from preventable diseases, cry out for our help! Youth, trapped in survival activities that degrade the spirit, plead silently for our assistance. Parents, unable to provide adequate food or warm shelter for their children, look to us for some way to help them break free from their prison of poverty. When we hear their cries, when we see their misery, our hearts are moved to do something. We give some money; we share a meal, deliver a bag of rice, or hand out a few clothes. And yet, while our gifts are appreciated, and meet an immediate need, we have done nothing to bring about lasting change for the long term improvement of lives. In order to break cycles of extreme poverty and bring about lasting, positive change, it is necessary to commit to long term programs that provide multiple interventions that bring water, health and sanitation, food security, primary education and income opportunities. This is the exciting challenge facing development agencies. ADRA Canada, part of the world-wide ADRA network, has been working to end extreme poverty in some of the poorest communities of our world for almost three decades. These years of experience have helped ADRA develop dedicated, successful programs that lift whole communities out of poverty! In the early days of international aid and assistance, countries and organizations targeted impoverished communities with quick-fix, stop-gap, measures. Containers full of food, clothes, medicines or farming implements were dropped off at ports or villages with good wishes for a better future. A series of wells might be drilled to bring water closer to the people, but after the pumps were installed and the donor plaques affixed, the drilling rigs and the organizations that funded them, would move on to another region or country in need. Little thought was given as to how the containers of food and clothes might disrupt the local economy, how the medicines might be misused, what villagers would do with the extra time they had now that they no longer had to walk to the river for water, or what would happen to the tractors or water pumps, once they broke down with no replacement parts or trained mechanics to facilitate repairs. Today, the discipline of International Development has grown into a science whereby professional programs of integrated interventions lead a community step-by-step out of poverty and disease, to a thriving community that is healthy, prosperous, self sufficient, educated and food-secure. Water systems that bring water to people, animals and gardens, are followed up with programs that bring sanitation to a village. The free time that the people now have, is used for education that brings literacy, numeracy, health education, agricultural instruction, and skills training to eager adult learners. Small business training is followed up with low-interest small loans to give people the boost they need to start their own small enterprises. Village planning promotes participation and co-operation. Education programs establish new mores of human rights, gender roles, values, and responsibilities. Respect and reconciliation replace abuse and demoralization. Parents learn about the dangers of human trafficking and the importance of education for all of their children. Co-operative programs share resources and help establish a market for goods. With these combined initiatives, development programs are lifting people out of poverty in thousands of communities around the world. Ending extreme poverty in our generation is a goal that speaks to us all. We Canadians want to live in a world that is peaceful, healthy, functional and prosperous, a world where children can fulfill their dreams, and parents can experience the dignity of self-sufficiency. Reaching this goal calls for the participation of us all. As we work together to lift people out of poverty, we establish hope, not just for the poor, but for everyone.

Principles of participation
 
20:26
What is the video about? The video explores how service user and carer participation has become an increasingly important part of how adult social care services are developed and delivered. The video uses the example of how Manchester adult social care services are involving service users and carers. The film highlights the jigsaw model of participation, this connects four aspects of participation: Culture, Structure, Practice and Review. For further details about the jigsaw model see SCIE Guide 17. Participation operates at many different levels, from individual care packages to service design and commissioning. Any organisation wishing to develop meaningful participation must first develop a positive attitude towards the process. The process of meaningful participation can represent a real change from the previous process of service delivery and can help with the Putting People First agenda. There is a need to embed the idea of participation through all levels of social care. Service users and carers must feel that they have a stake in the service they receive. Messages for practice Service user and carer participation has become an increasingly important part of how adult social care services are developed and delivered. Any organisation wishing to develop meaningful participation must first develop a positive attitude towards the process. Participation can aid the Putting People First agenda in the transition to personalisation and individual budgets. There is a need to embed the idea of participation throughout the whole service. Who will find this useful? Relevant for all those working or using social care services, particularly users and carers and local authority commissioners.

Jamie Bennett is Executive Director of ArtPlace America, the first major public-private partnership to position art and culture as the core components of community planning and development, a practice called “creative place making.” ArtPlace cultivates programs that engage the arts in an effort to shape the social, physical, and economic future of given communities. To date, they have invested $56.8 million through 189 grants in communities of all sizes across the United States. Prior to ArtPlace, Jamie was Chief of Staff and Director of Public Affairs at the National Endowment for the Arts, Chief of Staff at the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs during Mayor Bloomberg’s administration, and has held leadership positions at the Agnes Gund Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art, Art21, HERE Arts Center, Merce Cunningham Dance Foundation, and Studio in a School. | @sarmoti About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
