Appreciative Inquiry Practitioner May 2013

Appreciative Inquiry and Communities of Practice

Abstract

The inquiry we undertake in this issue is to look for the ‘common unities’ that bring us together and make it possible for us to build social worlds together. Social worlds also hold the shared resources and infrastructures that make it possible for us to do and build things that make our dreams come true. We asked for contributions that could help us illustrate how communities of practice around the world have worked to build common unities and the shared resources and infrastructures that promote their own practice.
