What's the difference between stakeholders and community engagement?


ABCD and Community Organizing/Engagement

John Hamerlinck:

Anyone who feels the impact of a policy, or a situation is a stakeholder whether they are engaged or not. Any stakeholder who is "engaged" assumes responsibility and risk in order to create change.

Interesting comment about assuming responsibility and risk... do you think organizations think about that when they talk about needing to focus on "community engagement" through their work, projects, or initiatives?

Frameworks for capturing impacts of ABCD


Tips, Tools, Strategies, and Technology

Dee Brooks:

Hi Ian,

I undertook some complementary work in Indonesia, alongside Alison from Coady, with the Islamic universities over a couple of years... I have Alison's M&E final report that I'm sure she wouldn't mind sharing (she's now retired), if you would like a copy?

Also, I have added your conversation to the ABCD in Action Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/429625007423984/

Regards,

Dee...

Hey Dee - if you think it's ok with Alison, can you post that final report here as well?  Thanks!

Deb

Happy Holidays! What do you celebrate? How do you celebrate?


Connecting to each other

December and January are filled with holidays. Around the world, people and communities celebrate their faith, their cultures, their beliefs, and their values through "holidays". What holidays you celebrate? What traditions or rituals are important to you this time of year? Most importantly, what food is symbolic of your celebrations (because food is often the center of community)?

Share your thoughts and experiences here.
