I’ve just had an article published in openDemocracy under the Transformation theme. Called “If you care about changing society, focus on strengths” it discusses the relationship between strengths-based approaches and social change, using the Transition movement as an example. In it I argue that strengths-based approaches can benefit from the critical analysis of social change movements, and social change movements can benefit from a focus on community strengths and not just the problems communities face.
I’d love to hear what you think.
