Bright Spots Webinar

August 31, 2017 at 3:56 PM

*From the Community Waitakere Noticeboard*




Bright Spots Webinar  

Join the Child Rich Communities Webinar and examine 3 lessons that emerged from the Bright Spots report.



DATE: 12th September 2017
TIME: 2 - 3pm
LOCATION: your computer!
This webinar is for everyone. Whether you are supporting, working with, or you are keen to learn more about community-led approaches. While children is the theme, these lessons can be applied across sectors, agencies, communities and places.

We’ll start the webinar with two case studies; Lizzie McMillan-Makalio from the Waitangirua Hub and Jenny TePunga-Jurgens from Whanganui’s 303 place will share their experience of these three lessons:


1: See the local people as the greatest asset. Local people should be viewed as an important resource, rather than being ‘vulnerable’, ‘high-needs’ or ‘broken’.

2: Enable people to dream again. Counter the culture of disempowerment, focus on what is already working in communities.

3: Go beyond social service delivery. Walk alongside people, use soft doors and ensure reciprocity.


Inspiring Communities’ David Hanna will apply a bit of theory to these approaches and we want you to join in. There'll be space to learn and share from each other.  Unicef’s Prudence Stone will moderate live online questions and discussions with the presenters throughout the webinar.  
Register now - you'll receive instructions and the link to join us from the comfort of your desk!
