In 2016 Council hosted world-renowned experts, Cormac Russell from Nurture Development and Peter Kenyon from Bank of Ideas to introduce our community and Council to a ‘Community Building Masterclass’. Community Building is about starting with 'what’s strong, not what’s wrong', and focuses on communities discovering their existing local capacities and assets.
Since the masterclass Council has become one of the first Australian Councils to join a ‘National Network of ABCDE Community Building Learning Sites’. This will give us access to expert advice, mentoring, workshops, tools and resources and connect us up with other communities around the world, who are also working on community building projects.
Council has launched the Bass Coast Community Builders Network to continue sharing ideas and learning from one another. Click here to view the calendar of events for 2017.
