What does ABCD look like during a COVID Pandemic?

This is the question we'll explore at our August Gathering for ABCD in Action.

One of the basic assumptions of asset-based community development (ABCD) is that people are connected to a place, where they have opportunities to see each other, interact, build relationships, and work together to create the community they want.

So what happens when you can't meet in person? When we are stuck at home? When our third places (places where people spend time together in the community) are closed? When people are wary of being face-to-face?

We don't have the answers, but we'll provide the space for lively conversation. Our hosts will guide you through a series of questions in small groups in order to help you think about what community engagement looks like when you can't be physically together. Bring your ideas, stories, and questions.

You can expect a casual, fun, and introvert-friendly group who just want to better connect with their fellow community members.

This gathering for ABCD in Action members will start at 3:00 pm PDT / 5:00 pm CDT / 6:00 pm. EDT on August 6 in the United States.
