|Eiwor Backelund Jacobsson has always wanted to participate in community development, so she has been a leader/member of a local history society, an adult learning association, a local broadband economic association, a parent association and a political party. From her own leadership experience she has learnt what is needed to keep the engagement alive and from her membership years she knows what will definitely eliminate people´s passion.|
|Ad van Roosmalen believes that commitment and ownership are key to successful community development. You can only achieve full commitment and ownership if the people concerned are fully participating and engaged in the process from the start. Ad has facilitated the set up of networks of change in local communities and in professional communities. This gave him first-hand experience of how to keep commitment high and to allow ideas and solutions to emerge.|
