What is Community?

It's about people. People live in multiple communities.

Community is both a feeling and a set of relationships among people. People form and maintain communities to meet common needs.
Members of a community have a sense of trust, belonging, safety, and caring for each other. They have an individual and collective sense that they can, as part of that community, influence their environments and each other.
As a supplement to RAKAN Sarawak, RAKAN Sarawak Community can focus on Sarawak community achievement and development in various aspects and highlight more on Sustainable Community.

Sustainable community engage all facets of society in working together for the benefit of the whole.

A sustainable community can persist over generations, enjoying a healthy environment, prosperous economy and vibrant civic life. It develops in harmony with the ecological patterns it thrives in.

Many communities around the world have chosen to practice sustainable development, which is a branch of the standard community development process that takes into account issues of sustainability economically, socially, and environmentally in the community.
