Educopia Announces Publication of Community Cultivation - A Field Guide.
What are the characteristics of a healthy, sustainable community? What are the most crucial elements a community must attend to in order to thrive? What activities can a community undertake in order to strengthen and grow its core?
Issued by the Educopia Institute in November 2018, Community Cultivation - A Field Guide (https://educopia.org/cultivation) provides a powerful lens that can provide both emerging and established communities with ways to understand, evaluate, and plan their own growth, change, and maturation. The Field Guide is designed for use by directors, managers, facilitators, governance bodies, officers, and staff members. It provides mechanisms for assessing, developing, managing, and sustaining community projects, programs, and organizational operations. It also offers a snapshot of the tools, resources, and training modules Educopia regularly uses in its consulting and community-building work, including templates, workshops, and guides.
We are offering the Field Guide freely in the hope that it will empower more community facilitators and leaders to invest in the health and sustainability of their own collaborative networks. For more information about the Field Guide and how it can be used to improve the viability of a broad range of library, archives, museum, and publisher communities, please check out our blog post, "Community Cultivation Revisited" (https://educopia.org/category/blog/), or contact [log in to unmask]
