Community buildingCommunity building is a field of practices directed toward the creation or enhancement of community among individuals within a regional area (such as a neighborhood) or with a common interest. It is sometimes encompassed under the field of community development. A wide variety of practices can be utilized for community building, ranging from simple events like potlucks and small book clubs, to larger–scale efforts such as mass festivals and building construction projects that involve local participants rather than outside contractors. Activists engaged in community building efforts in industrialized nations see the apparent loss of community in these societies as a key cause of social disintegration and the emergence of many harmful behaviors. They may see building community as a means to increase social justice, individual well-being and reduce negative impacts of otherwise disconnected individuals. Re-Building While building a community, beliefs are at the base of that community.
amazonImmanuel KantKant, ImmanuelBritannica Student Article (1724–1804). The philosopher of the 1700s who ranks with Aristotle and Plato of ancient times is Immanuel Kant. He set forth a chain of explosive ideas that humanity has continued to ponder since his time. Kant was born on April 22, 1724, in Königsberg, Germany (now Kaliningrad, Russia). After leaving college he worked for nine years as a tutor in the homes of wealthy families. Kant never married and he never traveled farther than 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Königsberg. Kant's most famous work was the ‘Critique of Pure Reason' (published in German in 1781). For example, we see only one or two walls of a house at any one time. Kant said that thoughts must be based on real things.

Agency of the Future Guide: Telework More Than a Trend – A Workplace TransformationDo you remember The Jetsons? The show centers on a family living in the futuristic world of 2062. The world featured flying cars, robotic maids and machines that could do the impossible, cooking dinner in an instant, pressing the laundry and walking the dog with the push of a button. However, even in this futuristic world, George still got dressed every morning and left his house of gadgetry to trudge to the office. According to the 2012 Status of Telework in the Federal Government report, roughly 35% of the federal workforce is eligible to telework, but only 11% take advantage. However, that cultural bias against telework is shifting as technology makes it easier to stay connected to colleagues and work-related information.

Co-creationCo-creation is a form of marketing strategy or business strategy that emphasizes the generation and ongoing realization of mutual firm-customer value. It views markets as forums for firms and active customers to share, combine and renew each other's resources and capabilities to create value through new forms of interaction, service and learning mechanisms. It differs from the traditional active firm – passive consumer market construct of the past. Co-created value arises in the form of personalised, unique experiences for the customer (value-in-use) and ongoing revenue, learning and enhanced market performance drivers for the firm (loyalty, relationships, customer word of mouth).
