  • #1 Shiny new shovel - community place identity (sense of place). It has been left out and neglected for so long that it is starting to rust. Save it before it is too late! #2 Humble pie maker. You would be amazed at the knowledge and experience that sits around the table in community meetings. Your boss, your boss’ boss, and thousands of lawyers, doctors, and professionals all live in your communities. But aside from technical skills, communities hold their knowledge in the heads of their members – tap into those people and you will be amazed at what you will learn. #3 Industrial-strength hearing aids. Cause ya need to listen. When I was working for local government I would always be asked what I thought about a topic affecting the community. Trust me, they didn’t want to hear what I thought, and I knew that. So I would always reply “hmmm, tell me what YOU think of that…”. And they always would. #4 Change of old clothing. If you want to be trusted, if you want to engage, then you are gonna have to get dirty with the locals. Turning up once or twice a year to help with a working bee, or baking some cookies for the old folk, or helping with a stall… these things are priceless. AND you pick up a good sense of the community spirit and attitude. #5 Brush and dustbin. Why? Because sometimes you put your faith in people and they mess up. Get over it, clean up as best you can, and move on. Don’t quit just because of one negative result. If the community are on your side, they’ll work just as hard as you to put things right!
  • Communities are capable of great synergy if left to manage themselves. But therein lies the real challenge – because creating that self-managing ability requires a heightened level of self awareness and leadership. In every community there are leaders laying dormant – sometimes in the most unexpected places. However for true leadership to emerge there needs to be independence. Providing funding to employ a person to work in a community as an emergency co-ordinator is ineffective as it creates a dependence. Employing a person to work with a community to seed projects that create self-reliance is a highly recommended step toward building true community resilience. This doesn’t have to cost a lot of money… or any money at all! Communities already have huge amount of resource – both in terms of economic and social capital. Recognising that there are redundant resources is important – it sends a strong message to a community that building resilience is about looking within for the resources required, not looking externally. Research owned and driven by the community gives a sense of ownership and achievement to the people involved. A hazardscape analysis is a good place to start, is of interest to everyone in the community, and it provides food for thought and motivation to community leaders.
