A micro hack to explore how tech can enhance asset based community development.

Asset based community development is a methodology for the sustainable development of communities based on their strengths and potentials; organising the community around issues that move its members into action; and then determining and taking action. ABCD uses the community's own assets and resources as a basis for development and leadership.

This event is an opportunity for civic minded designers and developers to spend an afternoon with people from local communities to consider how digital might be an enabler of ABCD approaches. During the workshop we will hear a series of five minute ABCD stories that provide insights into how communities in Leeds are leveraging their assets for positive change. There will then be an opportunity for participants to do rapid paper prototyping of digital tools that have the potential to enhance the ability of communities to make a difference.

This event is for citizens and ABCD practitioners to meet with people from the design and digital sectors who want to make a difference to communities in Leeds. We hope that this novel combination will be a recipe for new insights and opportunities. Come along and make a difference!
