Community Values Assessment


Values in the Community

The consciousness of the community you live in (city, town, neighbourhood) directly influences the well-being and safety of your family. Has your community explicitly identified its values? Does your community have a vision for its future? How does your community want to grow and develop? You can explore all these issues with the Community Values Assessment. 

Making the evolution of consciousness, conscious.
