Title: The Pyramid of Engagement and Water Activism in Two Canadian Communities
Author: Case, Robert; Zeglen, Laura
Abstract: In this paper, the authors share results from a comparative study exploring the dynamics of community engagement surrounding local water advocacy organizations in two Canadian communities. While emergent local issues and the perception of crisis triggered some short term community engagement, social factors such as collective identity, a sense of community, and sense of efficacy appear to be more important for sustaining and deepening engagement. Drawing on the results, the authors show how the "pyramid of engagement", by depicting activist engagement as a multi-level, developmental process, can serve as a useful tool for community engagement scholars and practitioners alike.
