Community

Community Life - Here we will be exploring our individual identities, the touch points with our community and the role of the community in shaping of the individual. By setting up the right environment – we can connect people so as to support one another, embrace new skills, learn to speak out on the topic and create sustainable action. Here you will find reasons for inspiring individuals to lead their communities and for empowering the leaders of today to create exemplary leaders of tomorrow. A community is a small or large social unit (a group of living things) who have something in common, such as norms, religion, values, or identity. Communities often share a sense of place that is situated in a given geographical area (e.g. a country, village, town, or neighborhood) or in virtual space through communication platforms. Durable relations that extend beyond immediate genealogical ties also define a sense of community. People tend to define those social ties as important to their identity, practice, and roles in social institutions like family, home, work, government, society, or humanity, at large.Although communities are usually small relative to personal social ties (micro-level), "community" may also refer to large group affiliations (or macro-level), such as national communities, international communities, and virtual communities.
