One of the most challenging tasks we face in our communities is making positive, long-lasting change. Where does change begin? Who is involved? What needs to be done? This book covers all of those questions and more by showing you how to establish change, from the very first steps to the later stages. Accessible, engaging, and easy to read, the book weaves together change theory, research findings from our National Case Study project, and interviews with asset champions from the United States and Canada. Assets in Action gives you tried-and-true fundamentals of starting, building, and supporting a healthy community.
Best use: Community initiatives and anyone interested in using the assets to guide positive community change.
