This is an interesting read. Anyone else committing to avoid these terms?
Community Development Cliches
Good article.... These words have bothered me for a long time:
One other word that wasn't mentioned in the article - volunteer. Don't get me started on that one!
thanks for sharing this, Ron!
Great article. Thanks for sharing it, Ron.
I would also add these cliches:
synergy - it made my skin crawl to even type the word
best practices - "BEST?" - you can't replicate history, relationships, local culture . . .don't just do what other people have done
self-sufficiency - We need each other.
