    Building permanent relationships (3 words per instructions)

    Those are three very fine words. I especially like “permanent” as a way of thinking about engaging communities. Too often we look for numbers of people attending a one-day event as engagement. I think it is better to have 10 people show up more than once than to have 50 people show up once.


    building sustainable connections


    Listening to what people are interested in doing not just letting them know what you think is important. Getting people who want to be engaged involved.
