Vibrant Communities

The Vibrant Communities website provides a wide range of opportunities for exploring and sharing ideas about poverty reduction. The site also features multimedia presentations that explore the characteristics of vibrant communities, ways to promote multi-sector collaboration, and examples of comprehensive community initiatives to reduce poverty. The site includes the Vibrant Communities online learning centre, which lets Learning Community members communicate with each other and access key documents, tools and interactive learning supports developed by and/or for members. Members of the Learning Community can access a moderated bulletin board for ongoing group discussions or a quarterly Coaches Corner with information and insights on relevant themes. Non-members will also find links to research materials, community-building resources and websites of other organizations involved in grassroots poverty reduction and related initiatives.
