The Constellation is celebrating Community Action Day.
Imagine what would happen if every single community in the world was to take stock of its response to the issues of concern and take action to progress towards Life Competence? It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Community Action Day (CAD) around December. By acting together on that day in response to life concerns, we will remind ourselves and others that we (communities, families, individuals) are the key actors in response to the threats to our well being.
During the Community Action Day you and your community are invited to build your dream for your community, assess where you are on the path towards that dream, celebrate progress and sketch the way forward. You can choose to respond to the issue most of concern for you, which can be peace, HIV, malaria or any other issue.
You can share the stories, challenges and progress of this day on the Community Life Competence online platform. You and your community can share photographs of your great moments in the CAD photo album, and your Self Assessment and Action Plan in the forum discussion. After the day, you and others will be able to refer to this site for inspiration, information and ideas on how communities around the world are also competently dealing with key issues such as peace, HIV, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Domestic Violence, Adolescent Reproductive Health and more.
We are providing a Resource Pack as a guide for you and your community to plan and coordinate your event. It offers step-by-step instructions and a handy toolkit, as well as some unique ideas for how to celebrate. The communities will come together to discuss their strengths, do self assessment and make action plans and upload action plans on our website. You can join the group on http://aidscompetence.ning.com/group/communityactionday
