Rural Community Development Workshop with Peter Kenyon
Over 50 people were on hand at Monora Park on Monday June 26 to participate in a community workshop led by Bank Of Ideas founder Peter Kenyon. Thanks to our partnership and work with the Rural Ontario Institute who have a past relationship with Peter, we were invited to host him for a session in Dufferin as part of his cross Canada vacation and working road trip. The feedback after the event was that everyone enjoyed the day. Peter outlined initiatives around community success in the face of economic collapse and provided many inspirational quotes and examples. Here are copies of the presentation:
Session 1: Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) with Rural Communities – waiting for presentation
Session 2: Leadership for Reinventing Rural Communities – Part 1 4MB,
Leadership for Reinventing Rural Communities – Part 2, 4MB
This event has passed.
Headwaters Community in Action and the Rural Ontario Institute are thrilled to be hosting Peter Kenyon for a day-long workshop. For those of you who have heard Peter before come and be re-inspired by his many engaging stories, for those of you who have never heard Peter speak before come prepared to enjoy your day!
You are in for a treat.
Peter, a well-known social capitalist and community enthusiast, is passionate about community and economic renewal. In this workshop, Peter will help you to be able to identify strengths and assets within your own communities. Peter’s approach is to ‘work from within’ rather than top down, a process that aids communities and local economies in learning to invest in themselves, ideas, assets, capabilities and resources.
