Community is a big thing. In more ways than one.
Going all sociological again (yeah, I know, I know)…
Community – overall key characteristics:
A group of people
Maintain regular contact
Share similar interests, beliefs & values
Striving for a common goal
Share sense of belonging
So. A community can be defined as a group of people who have regular contact. They share similar values, beliefs and interests. They all strive for a common goal and share a sense of belonging.
Does that sound familiar?
The Concept of Community – divided into two types:
Traditional (often rural)
Face to face contact
Strict moral code (often influenced by church)
Closeknit, intimate ties
Modern (often urban)
Not bound by location
Diverse/ culturally heterogeneous
Social conflict can arise
Laws and moral code not as bound or based on religion/ family/ other traditional beliefs
See you later.
