What do organized communities achieve more efficiently than government? What could they achieve?"
there are many elements that either liberate or constrain the power of a community to self organize in a way that is resilient. The three elemts that i believe a community has to foster in order to develop community guided solutions is through inlusion, collaboration, and innovation Inclusion: communities need to be guided by new energy, new voices. People who are marginialized need to be invited into the process, utherwise organzing will tend to maintain the status quo Collaboration: communities need tools and process that help us work together, not exactly something government can bestow upon us. we need to take the lead in this Innovation: there is no WRIGHT way for a community to develop. A community needs to understand its self, its place in the world, and the energy of those who live within it. Through this learning process, our communities will see new ways forward that we didnt believe existed for all of this we need leaders who are filled with courage, passion, and resilience
