In community development there is no one best way, there is a way. This session addresses that complexity by building on a 10 step planning framework that uses a community development approach. Examples of specific facilitative tools and resources will be provided. These productive techniques are designed to build trust, strengthen relationships, and encourage stakeholder discussion, feedback, decision-making, co-creation, and ownership of community initiatives.
