Event description

Description

We assume that participants in this workshop will (either/or/both)

  • have experienced working in the community development area or in a setting which claimed to operate from a community development perspective;

  • have attended the introductory course we held here last month;

  • have been learning about CD in any other educational or training context.

We will attempt, therefore, to enter into deeper levels of reflection about the meaning of (y)our practice, especially from your own points of view and from an examination of what you yourself have made out of your experiences.

Generally, we believe that in order for CD to remain relevant for the present era and to continue playing its critical, questioning and transformative role, that it needs to be removed from the language-sets of governmental and (most philanthropy- or government-funded) NGO programs and that we need to ‘relocate’ our ways of thinking and practicing the craft of CD into the relational sphere and that we need to re-insert it into our imaginations of an alternative kind of society we need to move towards for our own survival and for the survival of the earth which sustains us. So, social and ecological justice and restoring human and interspecies relationships are ‘big things’ for us.
