dc.description.abstract“Community development is the crucible of democracy, the place where citizens come together to share their dreams and plan their common futures.” When I began back in the department we talked about the fact that – despite not needing a solid definition – there is risk that the body of knowledge and skill that is Community Development might be lost or diluted if it was not celebrated, reinvigorated and protected. This journal was formed to do just that. Fitting within a broad framework of what Community Development should be, Whanake was born of wanting to create a place where citizens from across the Pacific region can come together to share their dreams and plan their common futures – safe guarding the many fine definitions that our community of practice has been built upon. Of celebrating, reinvigorating and protecting the conversations Gavin and I have held dear.en_NZ
