IACD World Conference Darwin June 2022

World Community Development Conference – Darwin, June 2023.

“From the Edge” is a rare and unique opportunity for Aotearoa New Zealand and Pacific practitioners, participants, academics, policy makers, and funders to share perspectives with global colleagues – especially on current contexts, challenges and successes for community-led development.

Inspiring Communities thinks it’s time to check community-led rhetoric with reality. New Zealand’s stable democracy, growing Māori economy and contributions, and relatively small size provides an ideal platform to model new Government systems. Success requires new levels of collective effort facilitated by widening conversations.
