What would our neighborhoods look like if neighbors were connected based upon the gifts, skills, and interests they have to share with one another?
Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) is a world-wide movement based on the work of the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University, co-founded by John McKnight, author of Building Communities from the Inside Out and more recently, The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods. Neighborhood Partners is a new collaboration of nonprofit, government, and corporate organizations launching an ABCD process in a pilot neighborhood of Appleton.
At this session, we will learn first-hand about the simple power of neighbor-to-neighbor conversations that explore what is most important and what we have to share with each other.
Tom Mosgaller is a long-time community organizer and community development professional who serves on the faculty of the ABCD Institute. Tom is mentoring Neighborhood Partners in the Fox Valley.
