Dare to dream

'Dare to Dream' is an event aimed at helping people to focus on what 'living a good life' actually means and how we can work together to prevent isolation and loneliness.

The two-day event will take place on the 26 and 27 June at Aspull Civic Hall in Wigan, Lancashire.

It will enable participants to discover the assets needed to build strong communities that have a place for everyone. It will explore why Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) makes sense to ordinary people.

The event will be delivered by Cormac Russell of Nurture Development and faculty member of the ABCD Institute, Northwestern University, Chicago, and Caroline Tomlinson from In Control and director of the newly formed My Life social enterprise.

'Dare to Dream' will appeal to people passionate about building a bridge between people on the margins of community life.

The Asset-Based Community Development Institute (ABCD) is at the centre of a large and growing movement that considers local assets as the primary building blocks of sustainable community development.

ABCD aims to build on the skills of local residents and the supportive functions of local institutions. Asset-Based Community Development draws upon existing community strengths to build stronger, more sustainable communities for the future.
