tackle problems together, build community
The Common Good Builder is a problem-solving process for communities and organisations to tackle difficult issues by applying the principles of Common Good Thinking. It brings together people whose interests may be estranged to talk through difficult problems, find solutions and identify actions leading to lasting transformations that enable all to flourish.
The process is built around the principles of Common Good Thinking as codified and taught by Together for the Common Good. Under these principles the process has a number of stages: Induction, Preparation, a One-day Event, and an Action Period. Churches are well-placed to host this process and bring people together to play their part in tackling some of the most difficult issues in the community.

We are currently trialling the process in Bournemouth with a city centre rector, working with multiple civic partners, to tackle a street homelessness issue. If you would like to discuss how you could use the process in your context, please get in touch.
