About the presenter

Carmen Stewart is Project Activator for It Takes a Town.

It Takes a Town is built upon the premise that we all have a role to play in creating change: residents, services, clubs, churches, businesses, schools and government.

It Takes a Town is focused on nurturing the qualities of collaboration, generosity and responsiveness.

If we get the culture of community ‘right’ and provide backbone support for the seeding of new collaborations and initiatives, then multiple outcomes can reverberate out for the benefit of children, families and individuals.
