Greater Shepparton City Council warmly welcomed Jim Diers to Shepparton on 21 October 2013. Jim is a renowned international expert on community capacity building. Over a day of workshops Jim shared many inspiring stories from within Australia and across the world of what can be achieved if we build the capacity of communities to take a lead in their own future. He shared stories of what can be achieved if communities, organisations and government bodies work together and highlighted the value of community members having the opportunities to contribute to decision making in their local communities.
Council aims to implement this community development approach to empower and strengthen communities, encourage collaborative practices and celebrate and embrace the diversity of our community here in Greater Shepparton.
This clip captures Jim's thoughts and insights into how inclusive and connected communities are built and what role community members play in creating change.
