'Two of the most basic prerequisites for human civilisation - the need for people to live in harmony with each other and the need to live in harmony with the environment - are not being met by the current social, economic and political order. Existing institutions and welfare services in Western societies are proving to be ineffective solutions to social problems in both the long term and the short term. Community Development presents a vision of how things might be organised differently, so that genuine ecological sustainability and social justice can be realised in the experience of the human community.'
