ODN Europe and The National Trust are delighted to announce a one day session on learning from Community Development.
Many of the values underpinning OD practice are closely linked to those of community development (CD) and while the links between CD and OD may be acknowledged as part of the history of the field, are there opportunities for OD to learn from CD now and in the future? What can the field of CD and CD practitioners teach us that can help our practice and our impact in organisations? And if we believe OD has the potential to have a greater impact (by using our skills in communities and in working on wider societal issues) is developing greater links with the CD community of practice not only helpful to our practice, but a moral obligation?
This event will explore the links between CD and OD with a firm focus on developing knowledge and skills that can be used in practice. Speakers are practitioners and leaders in the field of CD and Participative Practice who will lead workshops sharing some of the key tools, techniques, methods and approaches they use in their work. These practitioners will share a small range of case studies of their work as the basis for shared reflection on the implications and opportunities for OD.
