The Economics of Community Building is designed to prepare learners to take action to develop community-based initiatives in their communities, clusters and in the wider society. Through active participation, we will examine the world's economic conditions through the Framework for Action, in-depth study of the Bahá’í Writings including the Nine Year Plan, as well as secular sources, and plan strategies for implementing their guidance to develop economic activities with moral and spiritual foundations. Topics include holding productive conversations about the economic significance of justice, economic well-being and prosperity, the impact of oneness on economic life, village and community economics, and taking concrete action to implement the learning from the course.
