What is Community Building?

Community building is about people from the community, government, business and academia working together to take steps towards solutions to issues affecting their communities. It is about

  • understanding where the community is at,
  • what the community aspirations are,
  • what needs to happen to enable change to happen; and
  • adapting what has worked elsewhere and enlisting support from government and other partners to act together to create change.
