Building Community

ebook

An easy-to-use guide for local leaders working to engage their community in growing a more equitable, healthy, and sustainable future

Building Community is the easy-to-use guide that distills the success of healthy thriving communities from around the world into twelve universally applicable principles that transcend cultures and locations.

Exploring how community building can be approached by local citizens and their local leaders, Building Community features:

  • A chapter on each of the 12 Guiding Principles, based on research in 27 countries
  • Over 30 knowledgeable contributing author-practitioners
  • Critical practical leadership tools
  • Notes from the field – with practical dos and don'ts
  • A wealth of 25 case studies of communities that have learned to thrive, including towns and villages, inner-city neighborhoods, Indigenous groups, nonprofits, women's empowerment groups, and a school, business, and faith community.
  • Building Community is essential reading for community leaders, activists, planners, policy makers, and students looking to help their communities thrive.

    Strong local communities are the foundation of a healthy, participatory, and resilient society. Rather than looking to national governments, corporations, or new technologies to solve environmental and social problems, we can learn and apply the successes of thriving communities to protect the environment, enhance local livelihood, and grow social vitality.
