by Liz Weaver

Healthy, safe, vibrant communities have at their core leaders and stakeholders who believe in and work together to affect positive change. The Journey of Collective Impact provides practical approaches and resources to advance collective impact, and explores new thinking about its application. Community leaders and practitioners of collective impact will find ways to: • Explore the core conditions of Collective Impact, including developing a common agenda, shared measurement, accessing mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communications and backbone infrastructure • Apply the Collective Impact framework • Take Collective Impact to the next level Community leaders will find a framework for community change in a broad range of issues including poverty reduction, homelessness, health and wellbeing, and the environment. With contributions from a variety of authors, the articles in this book contain unique perspectives about the application of collective impact. They provide the skills and strategies necessary for success in implementing the collective impact framework.
