Activation of the locals, their involvement in the development process by the community. The purpose is to extend the group of activists as far as possible.
The process in a simplified form: the initiative of the community developer is taken over by the central core of the locals (locals committed to change, a group of local initiators who invited the community developer), who extend the initiative to a wider circle of people, who organize community activities concerning jointly identified local issues into processes. Involvement in the community development process is continuous, as a flow of new people are becoming committed to local issues.
