What can individuals and organisations do to encourage Kinder Communities?

Author: Carnegie UK Trust

Year: 2017

At our first meeting of partners involved in the Kinder Communities project in November 2016, we discussed what we thought individuals and organisations might do to encourage kinder communities.

The downloadable table provides a summary of that discussion, and questions where we are less sure.

We would welcome feedback on how we might take these steps.

If this feels relevant to you, perhaps you could download it, print it out, and jot down or stick post its on as and when you think of something relevant.

You could also use it to run a discussion with people you are working with or in your community.

We are not looking for answers to everything here, just what feels relevant to your experience.

We would welcome thoughts based on your experience on our Facebook page.
