Community Action to Promote Health – Let’s Start From Where We Are

Nic McBride

24 October 2017 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Bellerive Yacht Club

64 Cambridge Rd, Bellerive

Presented by Prof David Snowden, Bangor University, Wales.

Prof Snowden is architect of the Cynefin Framework.

The Cynefin Framework – cynefin is Welsh for haunt, habitat, familiar – offers decision-makers a “sense of place” from which to view their perceptions. This workshop will be a unique opportunity to hear first-hand from David and to be involved in a dynamic and interactive process to consider the potential for health promoting action at the local and virtual community level in Tasmania. The workshop will involve:

  • Understanding how the Cynefin Framework helps us make sense of how we use knowledge and take action
  • A comprehensive overview of the framework and principles, focussing on decision making and leading change on complex issues – such as the vision for a healthy Tasmania
  • Discussion of ideas for connecting local action with shared principles and State wide direction. We hear that people want a belief in possibilities, hope for a better future, and we know there is a genuine resourcefulness among many of our places and communities in Tasmania.

We hope you can join us for this interactive and creative workshop. Tea coffee and morning tea provided.
