Community Development: Local and Global Challenges


At the outset of the 21st century, community development and animation socioculturelle are facing new challenges resulting from global developments. Throughout the world, problems arise in the local context, different though they may be depending on the case. There are no simple solutions or useful recipes for dealing with these complex issues. Nevertheless, learning and development across boundaries is always possible. The question is only: How?
That is why, in September 2007, the 3rd International Congress on Community Development – Local and Global Challenges invited experts from around the world to Lucerne University to exchange their views on these topics.
