Welcome to Building Genuine Community Partnerships with Jim Diers.
Jim Diers knows that community engagement in 2018 means something very different than it did 20, 10 or even 5 years ago. In 2018 we held a livestream with Jim as he shared concrete tools and stories of building genuine successful partnerships in today’s communities.
Jim will explored the importance of key factors such as:
- Cultural diversity
- Aging populations
- Social capital
- Impacts of climate change
- Loss of community and connection to place
- Community capacity vs. community need
Hear on-the-ground stories of how powerful tools such as community mapping, open space, bottom-up planning and others have assisted associations, agencies and government to build successful, broad, inclusive community engagement in today’s rapidly changing world.
