Beginners Guide to Assets Based Community Development with Peter Kenyon
– Feb 28th 2014 

Peter Kenyon will run a Beginners Guide to ABCD for our SA Faith in Action Community on February 28th 2014 at Western Link Uniting Church, 93 Crittenden Rd. Findon
All are welcome to join.

If you haven’t heard Peter Kenyon speak before you don’t want to miss this opportunity (I’ve included his bio below). If you have heard him come along anyway and be inspired all over again and join in the conversation about how else you might continue to use an strengths based approach to interacting with your local community.  It’s always a good day!

More information on future Faith in Action Workshops will be posted on the group website.

Peter Kenyon is a social entrepreneur and a community enthusiast. Over the last 18 years he has worked with over 1000 communities throughout Australia and overseas seeking to facilitate fresh and creative ways that stimulate community and economic renewal. He is motivated by the desire to create healthy, inclusive, sustainable and enterprising communities. Peter has had a background as a youth worker, teacher, youth education officer, and tertiary lecturer. His employment experiences have also included Director of Employment in Western Australia, Manager of the Community Employment Development Unit in New Zealand and Coordinator of the Natal Kwazulu Job Creation and Enterprise Strategy in South Africa. His international consulting work involves assignments in over 50 countries.

Peter became convinced that one cannot develop communities from the top down or from the outside in. It required communities to build from the inside out, and for their residents to invest themselves, ideas, assets and resources in the process. Subsequently, he created the Bank of I.D.E.A.S. (Initiatives for the Development of Enterprising Action and Strategies), in 1990, to promote such a paradigm shift and assist with the necessary facilitation, ideas and skills. For more information, see Peter’s bio on the Bank of I.D.E.A.S. website

    Hi Joanna
    I’ve just moved my site onto its own URL
    Which means any links you made to my old site are now broken…

    If/when you have a moment can you re attach them to the new address


  4. Okay Peter (that was quick) I will just need to work out how to do this without each of the posts being re-emailed to those who are following this blog.
