Collaboration for Building Sustainable Communities

In the final lesson in this module, we turn our attention to the benefits that can be gained from collaboration to build sustainable communities. Of equal importance, we consider some of the challenges to anticipate. Collaboration can be very rewarding and fruitful, but it can also be extremely frustrating and unproductive.

We continue our efforts in this module to provide perspectives on the benefits and challenges of collaboration from practice and theory. To start, we again turn to individuals with extensive experience across various contexts. We again pose two questions to each person and asked them to illustrate their answer using an example from their experience:

  1. What is the greatest benefit from collaboration to building a sustainable community?
  2. What is the greatest challenge of collaboration in the context of sustainability?

Please proceed to the next page to find the responses to these questions across three unique case studies.
