Key words that begin with the letter W
by Phil Bartle
Wealth is anything (goods or services) that has value. The amount of value is based on it being relatively scarce and relatively useful.
Shifting money about (transfer), in itself, does not create wealth, nor reduce poverty. Giving money to a poor person, repeated any number of times, does not solve the social problem of poverty. Wealth is created when value is added to the economy.
See IG, Poverty, Wealth.
Wealth belongs to the sixteen elements of strength, power or capacity of a community or organization. The degree to which the community as a whole (in contrast to individuals within it) has control over actual and potential resources, and the production and distribution of scarce and useful goods and services, monetary and non monetary (including donated labour, land, equipment, supplies, knowledge, skills).
The more wealthy a community, the stronger it is. (When greedy individuals, families or factions accrue wealth at the expense of the community or the organization as a whole, that weakens the community or organization). When stimulating a community to organize and act, the mobilizer needs to be aware of the role of wealth in empowering that community or organization.
See: Elements of Community Strength.

A "workshop" is a session that may be one or more days long.
Do not confuse it with a conference (which is to confer or discuss). A workshop is intended for work, and must have a planned output.
In a training workshop, the work is training, and the output should be among the five purposes of training indicated on this web site.
See "Preparing a Workshop."

A "workshop handout" is a source of knowledge, skill and information that parallels a textbook for an institutional course of studies.
A handout is a training document, usually one or two pages long, which is a source of information for the participants to learn something.
We note that mobilisation is not something that can be learned once and for all, as when getting a degree or certificate. Because of that, people who already are working in the field can upgrade their skills and knowledge by attending a workshop.
