The practice of community development is both a process and an outcome. The Community Development Society (CDS) Fellows initiative sought to initiate a shared learning agenda, and in the process, strengthen participation in the Society community through collective learning and problem solving. Lessons learned through this project included the importance of designing constructive interactions, and the importance of planning for and overcoming obstacles that might impact participation.
