Prosocial Initiatives that successfully manage common resources share 8 characteristics called the 8 Core Design Principles (CDPs). The Global Connections Foundation courses' goal is to maximize these CDPs to ensure your successful participation in the project. The Foundation courses will build your connection and regeneration knowledge and skills through accessibe and online self-paced manageable units designed for flexible participation. Optional weekly participatory webinars are offered throughout your course mebership.
 

CDP #1 - Shared identity and purpose 
A group functions best when its purpose is clearly understood and perceived as worthwhile by its members. A group also functions best when it offers a strong group identity, such that members are proud to belong and enjoy their time together. Prosocial is about creating cultures that constantly reflect on the “towards” move dynamically.
