Leadership and learning are indispensable from
each other (John F Kennedy, prepared for
delivery in Dallas, the day of his assassination,
Nov, 1963)
3
Its what you learn after you know it all, that
counts.   (John Wooden)
4
There can be no keener revelation of a societys
soul, than the way it treats its
children.   (Nelson Mandela)
5
  • If you want to go faster, go alone. If you want
    to go further, go together.

(African Proverb)
6
It takes a whole village to raise a
child. (African Proverb)
7
It takes a child to inspire a village. (Bliss
Browne)
8
The word 'community' is a broad term used to
define groups of people whether they are
stakeholders, interest groups, citizen groups
etc. A community may be a geographic location
(community of place), a community of similar
interest (community of practice), or a community
of affiliation or identity (such as industry or
sporting club). (Dept of Sustainability and
Environment, Victoria)
9
Engagement' is used as a generic, inclusive term
to describe the broad range of interactions
between people. It can include a variety of
approaches, such as one-way communication or
information delivery, consultation, involvement
and collaboration in decision-making, and
empowered action in informal groups or formal
partnerships. (Dept of Sustainability and
Environment, Victoria)
10
  • Community engagement can take many forms and
    covers a broad range of activities. Some
    examples
  • Informing the community of policy and program
    directions.
  • Consulting the community as part of a process to
    develop policy and program, or build community
    awareness and understanding.
  • Involving the community through a range of
    mechanisms to ensure that issues and concerns are
    understood and they become part of the
    decision-making process.
  • Collaborating with the community by developing
    partnerships to formulate options and provide
    directions.
  • Empowering the community to make decisions and to
    become part of implementing and managing change.

Key learning 1 Build from the Inside Out
I work from the firm belief that whatever
the issue, community is the answer. (Margare
t Wheatley, Author)
13
Strong communities are created when residents
are the producers of their own future. They can
not be replaced. No professional, institution,
business or government can substitute for the
power, creativity or relevance of productive
residents. (Mike Green)
14
The more parent and resident fingerprints that
can be found on a project, the more likely it is
that project will be meaningful and
sustainable. (Cormac Russell)
15
All the historic evidence indicates that
significant community development only takes
place when local community people are committed
to investing themselves and their resources in
the effort. That's why you can't develop
communities from the top down, or from the
outside in (John McKnight, Jody Kretzmann)
16
Most communities can often be compared to a
football game where 30,000 people who need the
exercise, turn up to watch 36 players who
dont. (Peter Kenyon)
17
People support what they help to create. They
want to make it happen. (Peter Kenyon)

Key learning 3 Focus on relationship building
Relationship building is the fundamental action
of community building. (Libby Ozinga)
20
Key learning 4 Discover what people care about
There is no power for change greater than a
community discovering what it cares about.
(Margaret Wheatley, Author)
21
  • People who
  • care are a communitys greatest asset. (Paul
    Born)

22
When people come together in conversation about
what truly matters to them, they take ownership
and responsibility for moving their issues and
ideas into wiser actions that last . (The Art
of Hosting)
23
Determination, energy and courage appear
spontaneously when we care deeply. We take
risks that are unimaginative in any other
context. (Margaret Wheatley)
24
Community a place filled with care
  • Care remains invisible unless you have
    conversations about what people care about.
  • People may not care about what you want them to
    care about.
  • Care must be discovered through relationships.
  • Learning conversations are the way to build
    relationships that make care visible.
  • (Mike Green)

25
Remember the importance of conversation
Key learning 5
Creating a positive change begins simply with
conversation. It is the way we human beings have
always thought together and initiated
action. (Peter Kenyon)
26
The simplest and most powerful investment any
member of a community or an organisation may make
in terms of community building is to begin
talking with other people as though the answers
mattered. (William Greider)
27
Go to the people Live among them Learn from
them Love them Start with what they know Build on
what they have But of the best leaders when their
task is done The people will remark We have it
done it ourselves. (Lao Tze)

I cant save the world on my own...it will take
at least three of us (Bill Mollison, founder of
the Permaculture Movement)
54
To journey through chaos, we must engage with
one another as explorers and discoverers. I
believe the passage is possible only if we claim
these roles. We need to realize that no single
person or school of thought has the answer,
because whats required is far beyond isolated
answers. We need to realize that we must inquire
together to find the new. We need to turn to one
another as our best hope for inventing and
discovering the worlds we are seeking (Margaret
Wheatley)
