Reflections on Community Change

TWO COUNTRIES, TWO PERSPECTIVES, ONE VISION FOR MOVING FORWARD
A paper co-authored by Megan Courtney, Inspiring Communities and Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy, Tamarack Institute

This year, Inspiring Communities is celebrating 10 years of supporting community changemakers and our colleagues at Tamarack Institute in Canada are celebrating 15 years. Over the years the two organisations have kept in touch through the exchange of ideas, people, and projects. While we have forged different paths, our shared journey is similar and crosses often.

To mark these mutual anniversaries, we decided to collaborate on a paper and a webinar in which we will explore the following four themes:

  • The frameworks each organisation deploys to drive forward change
  • The importance the authentic engagement of citizens has played in each organisation
  • The need for adaptive and flexible leadership in community change
  • The emergence of community-based innovation

The paper concludes with a shared vision for the future.
