We will be hosting two Global Gatherings that focus on the same question. Please register for only one of these.
Often community economic development is driven by local governments, NGOs or community development corporations. But some of the best examples of community economic development in the world have been driven by community residents and their associations.
Whether we are talking about communities of place (rural villages or urban neighborhoods) or communities of interest (people bound together through the same kind of livelihood activity), you’ll be sharing your stories and tools for helping community members identify opportunities for mobilizing local assets to reshape the economic backbone of their community economies.
How to Prepare
We’re going to be using Zoom, so read about it or download it here if you haven't used Zoom already. At a minimum, you'll want a webcam or video-enabled mobile device, a microphone, headphones, and a quiet space to chat with us.
