Evaluating and learning about community-led change – FREE & ONLINE

Tāmaki Makaurau | Auckland Wednesday 3 May 9:30-11:30am

Community-led change is an adaptive approach that encourages communities to try new things and learn from doing – iterating and improving as you go. Learning and evaluation are core skills for effective community-led change. 

In this free 2-hour online session, experienced community-led activator and evaluator Denise Bijoux will share what evaluating in community-led ways looks like. She’ll also share some useful tools and examples that can help you demonstrate the difference the impact and difference you’re making in your community-led mahi. 

Tāmaki Makaurau Hui

Our hui, ‘Uplifting the Mana’ was held on the 3rd of November at the Western Springs Community Hall.

When community-led development is centred on, or led by tamariki and their whānau, positive change can occur – not just for themselves, but for the health of the whole of the community. Everyone benefits.
