Streaming Media

Description

Presenter: Ashley Hollenbeck, Executive Director, Institute for Village Studies

Community-based approaches are widely recognized as a driver for sustainable development. However, many times they fail to meaningful prioritize local knowledge. Asset-based approaches to community development and education provide an alternative framework to redefine traditional development narratives, engage with residents as the experts of their communities, and better understand and utilize the complex web of relationships that are central to sustainability. We will explore the application of asset-based community development (ABCD) through international education programs in central Vietnam. Specifically, we will discuss how the farmers at the Thanh Dong Organic Garden used ABCD to improve their livelihoods, promote organic farming practices in the region, and influence local policy and conservation initiatives in Hoi An, Vietnam.
