Community is the answer…. An international Gathering IACD Conference 9th - 11th June 2014 Glasgow, Scotland
IACD is a global network of community development organisations, practitioners, activists, researchers and policy makers who are committed to global justice. It is the main international membership organisation for those working in or supporting community development. IACD links people together to facilitate learning and practice exchange at local and global levels. It works through partner networks to ensure that dialogue is grounded through critically reflecting on narratives of practice, collecting and disseminating case studies, tools and materials on community development. IACD has consultative status with the UN and its agencies.
ESB attended the conference and co facilitated a workshop with colleagues from the Welsh and All Ireland Endorsement Bodies, which explored our differences and similarities in our work and processes for ensuring the quality of community development learning and practice.
