Community Leadership

Growing local leadership and collaboration skills is critical to the success of community-led projects and activities. The key to this activity is listening to what our community organisations want to achieve, both individually and as a collective, and then enabling access to the skills and resources needed to achieve the desired outcomes.

Community leadership will likely include activities such as:

  • facilitating community workshops on a range of topics,
  • sourcing and/or delivering community governance training,
  • supporting or undertaking community research and/or feasibility studies, and
  • supporting organisations with advocacy to key decision-makers.

Putting Unity back into CommUnity Events - Community Building Block (CBB)

Session provided by Inspiring Communities

Thu 29th Feb 2024, 9:30 am - 11:00 am

"Join Anna Parker (Inspiring Communities) and Ole Maiava (Eke Panuku Development Auckland) to learn how we might put community front and centre in organising community events. In this Community Building Block session, we will unlock community events as powerful and transformative tools for community-led development, and we will have fun along the way! Ole will share from his vast experience of community and event organising, and offer strategies and tools that support the growth and leadership of others and what elements make fantastic events happen. We will be putting the unity back into our events - and this CBB will particularly support those who have the Neighbours Aotearoa 'Growing Together' campaign for March on their radar."
