Appreciating assets

Report that is the outcome of a nine-month inquiry process, initiated at an international event in London in November 2009. The event focused on the applicability, challenges and potential of utilising asset-based approaches in an UK/Irish context.

Participants included members of a Community of Practice sponsored by Carnegie UK Trust and extended to a total of over sixty international assets practitioners who are members of the IACD. The inquiry findings were explored and deepened at IACD’s annual global conference that took place in New Orleans in July 2010 and feedback from this and other UK peer reviews informed the final draft.
