What is this?

Community building is the process of intentionally creating and cultivating strong social connections among the members of a community, both online and offline. It requires active facilitation and leverages the collective intelligence of participants to foster acceptance, understanding and mutual aid. Community building endeavors to nurture a sense of belonging, shared purpose and collective responsibility, enabling members to take collective ownership of their shared environment and participate in shaping its future.
