Bolstering the Resources of Local Communities in Times of Turbulence: Collaboration between State Institutions, Business, and NPOs
The new challenges of the times make “concern for those close by” probably the only antidote to crises and opportunity for developing the resources of local communities. Solidarity and inter-sectoral collaboration with authorities, businesses and NPOs bring sustainable results despite the universal shortage of resources and instability. Mobilization and development of local communities are the “new black” in turbulent times. How could collaboration with the state be arranged to confirm NPOs and local communities as a resource with which co-operation is both possible and essential for supporting particularly vulnerable members of society during unstable times? How could businesses use social care resources to create an environment for the elderly? How can local communities improve the lives of children and families? What is the strength of NPOs as a mechanism for fine-tuning social care?
