dc.description.abstractThe Summer Institute is the main component of WIRA’s educational mandate, and targets university students and community practitioners. It builds knowledge and capacity at the community level and adopts a practical, hands-on approach. Instruction consists of fieldtrips, lectures, and seminars with community groups and academics. Sessions are led by local and national experts in the field, and facilitate an exchange of ideas among participants. The 2004 Summer Institute "What Makes a Good Urban Neighbourhood," examined the dynamics of neighbourhood change and community development in Winnipeg’s Inner City. Related theory and societal norms will be explored, as will current policy and neighbourhood programs. Assumptions will be identified and challenged. Topics include: Neighbourhood Decline, Gentrification, Aboriginal Community, Community Capacity Building, Safety, the Built Environment, and Community Engagement. This course is intended for university students and individuals who are working or volunteering with an inner city organization or group.en_US
