This updated edition of The Well-Connected Community provides theoretical insights and practical guidance for people working with and for communities, while taking account of changing political and economic contexts, including rising social inequalities and community tensions. Gilchrist considers new approaches to wellbeing, such as the use of social media for local and global organizing. This model of community development explains and promotes networking as a skilled and strategic intervention and provides recommendations for good practice.
