CLD Election Manifesto
In 2017, Inspiring Communities developed an election Manifesto that outlined the value of Government applying a community-led approach to address the country’s challenges and opportunities.
In this manifesto, Inspiring Communities called for all political party leaders to put local solutions, advocated for by local communities, at the centre of their work.
We called for a number of actions that we believed would enable Government to act more as a partner, enabler and co-host rather than prescribing from the top.
We encouraged you to spread this manifesto far and wide into the depths of your place and beyond. “Ask them what their party’s position is on taking a CLD approach to address the challenges faced in communities. Will their party adopt the five CLD principles as outlined in the manifesto? You could tell your story, as a powerful illustration of communities leading change. Talk about your challenges and opportunities, what works and what needs to change. Ask them to commit to being more innovative so together we generate positive change and sustainable wellbeing for all New Zealanders”.
