Asset Based Community Development: Focusing on what matters.
Guest blogger Cormac Russell, Managing Director of Nurture Development, Faculty member of the ABCD Institute and Director of ABCD Europe, continues the discussion on asset-based community development, initiated by an earlier blog
In the same vein, following the recent Greek elections, John McKnight, Peter Block and I wrote about the corrosive effects of globalisation and austerity on indigenous living, localism and the economic sovereignty of our democratically elected Governments. The election in Greece is an early fault line in the obscenity of the scarcity economic model that has created austerity and the global debt crisis, and is a sign of the emergence of neighborhood and community principles as the force guiding citizens and supportive Governments to take the future into their own hands.
