These two booklets are from a six booklet series written for community leaders and developers. The series looks as development issues in neighbourhoods, and the NIMBY responses that often arise. The attached two booklets introduce development proponents to Appreciative Inquiry as a different, more positive, way of addressing development scenarios. Booklet number 5 has a wonderful overview of AI in an easy to read and understand format, perfect for the lay person. Booklet number 6 is more a workbook for an appreciative approach to community development.
