Rural Vibrancy describes the nature of a rural community, which is characterized by active involvement and the creative, dynamic interaction of people from different groupings with the capacity to create common objectives and to act jointly to develop their community.
The Rural Alliances partnership have created an on-line and off line tool for rural communities and support groups to be able to measure different aspects attributed to rural vibrancy - Rural Vibes.
Rural Vibes plots what individuals and or groups think about their rural community. You can use one of two tools, the funky flowers for individuals or the group tool to form an overall picture of how the community views itself. The more people who participate, the better the overview about what is good about it and where they feel it could be improved.
These tools are great for planning projects, events, and setting up new alliances to make things happen.
This tool is free to use and provided instant feedback and it's a bit of fun as well. - Use the FREE Rural Vibes Toolkit.
