NEW PUBLICATION: Participation in Community Development


We are pleased to announce that Participation in Community Development: Problems and Possibilities is now available in digital form for the first time.

First published in 2006, this volume reflects both shifts in policy and community development over a significant period of time, reflecting not only the interests and concerns of government policy, but how these connect with those of practitioners and the local communities with whom they work. It features a collection of articles from the Scottish journal Concept. Published by Concept with support from the Community Development Journal.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Community is the answer

9th-11th June 2014

Glasgow, UK

(update: registration is now open)

This event will explore some of the most significant local and global questions we face today in the context of the answer: community.

How will we address the challenges of poverty? Of growing inequality? Of the environmental crisis? Of the failure of our institutions?

Community is the answer will showcase community-based solutions from Scotland and around the world. It will allow community members, activists, practitioners, researchers and policymakers to come together and examine what actually matters to people, how to measure it and how to place it at the core of what we do.

The event is a collaboration organised by the International Association for Community Development (IACD), the University of Glasgow and the Community Learning and Development (CLD) Standards Council for Scotland.

More information can be found on the Community is the answer website.

The full call for participation (including abstract guidelines) can be found here.

To submit a proposal for a presentation, seminar/workshop, arts-based learning event or field visit, fill in the online form by 29th November 2013.
