Creating Vibrant Communities by Paul Born
Book DescriptionEqual parts inspiration, perspiration, and information -- a book that is sure to take the Vibrant Communities story to new heights as it begins its next exciting phase. In Canada, "poverty reduction" is no longer a "wouldn't it be nice" dream discussed after yet another failure to make a dent in an age-old problem. It's a living, breathing, exhilarating reality. Why? Because all across the country people are approaching poverty in a positive, creative, and energetic way. They are doing so courtesy of a new social phenomenon called Vibrant Communities: a network of people who are getting people together - citizens (no matter what their income), community developers, business people, and representatives from all levels of government -- to determine needs, community assets, and strategies. They're putting plans into action with astonishing results. This book tells their story. And perhaps yours, too. Paul Born is the author of the recently published Community Conversations: Mobilizing the Ideas, Skills, and Passion of Community Organizations, Governments, Businesses, and People. He is internationally recognized for his innovative approaches to community building.He is the President and Co-founder of Tamarack - An Institute for Community Engagement and the founding chair of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network, Vibrant Communities Canada, and Opportunities 2000.

In this thoughtful and moving book, Paul Born describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories as a child of refugees and as a long time community activist.
