How do we do this work when everything keeps changing?
The Eco-cycle Framework is designed to help you plan for the changing seasons of CLD work.
It’s a reality of the world we live in: things around us are constantly evolving. Things don’t always go plan.
In our place we see residents come and go, different policy-makers, changes to infrastructure, key stakeholders alternate. So what can we do?
First of all it’s vital to recognise that we must all be prepared to keep learning and to keep adapting our approaches and responses.
Second of all, if we listen and can identify where the energy, resources, risks and opportunities are.
The Eco-cycle Framework helps us make sense of what we are noticing by drawing on metaphors and research from the natural sciences. Imagine you are looking after a forest; working with the different seasons, weather patterns, soil conditions, fires and storms that come through.
Check this resource out and see what new insights it offers you in working with the different seasons of your community.
