When

October 5-6, 2021

Where

Online via Zoom Conferencing

Conference Aims

The conference will consider current issues in Community development, new and applied research and innovative practice. In particular it will reflect on the CD response to the major challenges of our age, inequality and climate change as expressed in the 17 Goals for sustainable development known as the SDG’s.

 

The conference will reflect on CD today, the perceived retreat by Government and Local Government from supporting the field. The loss of education and training programs. The apparent side-lining of Community Economic Development in favour of a colonised version of Social Enterprise.

 

Our aim for this conference is to bring the standards to life by adding a specific chapter on practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, through a process which enables our neighbours in the region to develop their own national standards chapter, and build the relevance and resilience of our practice.
