The New Earswick Community Philosophy Project used an approach called 'Community Philosophy' to promote conversations and develop positive relationships between different groups of people within a community.

Reflections on the Joseph Rowntree Foundation's New Earswick Community Philosophy Project.

This three-year experiment used an approach called 'Community Philosophy' to promote conversations and develop positive relationships between different groups of people within a community. This report:

  • draws on the examination and analysis that was part of the project's day-to-day activity;
  • captures the reflections of the project director and participants in the project;
  • describes the theory behind the project, along with its activities (in the form of a series of practice-based examples); and
  • derives lessons of use to people who work in the community, especially youth and community workers, and those with responsibility for community involvement and organisational governance.
