On 27 – 29 October 2011, community members gathered to discuss the new COBRA project, which is looking at how communities can find solutions to problems using system viability approach. This system asks a key question: what do communities need to survive? Six main driving forces were presented for participants to explore this idea. During the workshop participants then used video, photographs and drawings to present their ideas. This photostory presents some of the ideas of the participants.
