Coady’s 2018 Asset-based and Citizen-led Development class traveled to Pictou County to lead a session in mapping assets. “During their field study visit the participants will have a chance to learn about Pictou County and give their perspective on its strength and assets. ‘The asset-based approach is unique in that often when it comes to development people look at what’s wrong and try to fix it’, says Gord Cunningham, assistant director Coady International Institute. ‘Asset-based is different because it focuses on what’s already strong and finds ways to build on those strengths.’ For more about the trip, visit:
