Charles Darwin Centre 2001
Community Development in Action
In pursuit if its objective to provide training appropriate to specific community development projects in land management, development planning, tropical ecology, coastal management and ecotourism, the Darwin Centre will seek to establish links with national and international development agencies, as well as links between those agencies and national and local NGOs.
Consequently, the resulting training packages and community development activities will be more appropriate to the main development actors in those regions, including government agencies, developers, NGOs and local communities.
In establishing and developing these links, the Darwin Centre will devise and implement a strategy for each individual development initiative, but in general, the strategy would involve some or all of the following separate actions:

Although there may not be too much wrong with current educational practice, many practices appear to be built on false theoretical assumptions arising from Freudian psychology and the resultant educational theory. It is may therefore be necessary to readjust the theory to fit the practice as much as the reverse.
