Description

Maribyrnong Community Leaders Networking Special Event

Guest Facilitator: Cormac Russell

Managing Director, Nurture Development
Faculty Member, ABCD Institute, Northwestern University, Chicago

Join us to explore the three fundamental questions…

• What can communities do that organisations cannot?

• What can organisations do that communities cannot?

• What can communities do with organisations that neither can do alone?

Over the last 20 years Cormac has worked in over 30 countries around the world. He has trained communities, agencies, NGOs and governments in ABCD and other strengths based approaches in Kenya, Rwanda, Southern Sudan, South Africa, the UK, Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. He is passionate about the proliferation of community-driven change and citizen-centred democracy, and has supported hundreds of communities to make ABCD visible through what he calls ABCD Neighbourhood Learning Sites. His motto, paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin, is: ‘When it comes to Community Building, well done is better than well said’. In January 2011 Cormac was appointed to the Expert Reference Group on Community Organising and Communities First, by Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society in the UK which he served on for the term of the Group.
