||Community Action Model listserv (CAM list)
||This is a discussion listserv for individuals and organizations that participated in Community Action Model (CAM) trainings or are implementing CAM projects.
The Community Action Model (CAM) creates change by building community capacity. The CAM is asset based and builds on the strengths or capacity of a community to create change from within. The CAM moves away from projects that focus solely on changing individual lifestyle and behavior to projects that mobilize community members and agencies to change environmental factors promoting economic and environmental inequalities. Fundamental to this model is a critical analysis that identifies the underlying social, economic, and environmental forces creating the health and social inequalities that the community wants to address.
The intent of the Community Action Model is to work in collaboration with communities and provide a framework for community members to acquire the skills and resources to investigate the health of the place where they live and then plan, implement and evaluate actions that change the environment to promote and improve health.
