Tools to spark new community organising
Shouldn’t our local economy be focused on meeting the needs of our community? That’s where we start, diving into the framework of fundamental human needs, developed by Chilean economist Manfred Max-Neef. This will provide a solid theoretical frame to inform a range of priorities and projects for communities. We’ll practice applying and integrating these concepts, as well as ideas sourced from permaculture, network theory, and new economics, using tools that can improve our effectiveness.
This workshop is for activists, community organisers, neighbourhood planners, policymakers, and anyone interested in sparking community-led change.
You will learn:
- Models that integrate economics, ecology and wellbeing
- How to apply the concept of ‘Fundamental Human Needs’ into project design
- Practical tools for catalysing local innovation and engaging your community
