We thought this was pretty cool. Above is an interactive map created using Google Fusion Tables of the locations of Participants of Village Earth/CSU’s online Certificate Program in Sustainable Community-Based Development (SCBD). Each red dot represents one or more participants in 77 different countries. The SCBD Certificate Program is a non-credit practitioner-focused program consisting of 23 courses focused on the practical implementation of rights-based, community-driven development. Each course is 5-weeks and follows a seminar format with course-work being completed on the participant’s own schedule (and time-zone). Registration for the next session ends August 4th.

Additionally, we will strive to identify successful methods of community empowerment through political organization.
