In this course we introduce community scheme ownership in six easy steps – we step into life in a community scheme in South Africa. We look at the meaning of this for owners, tenants and other inhabitants, and the importance of awareness and self- and other compassion in managing conflict.
The essence of a community scheme is that it exists because it is a property scheme for a community. However, in all probability, this is the most under-estimated aspect of community scheme ownership.
Owners and tenants often do not understand the impact of having community members above, below and on each side of them: separated by approximately 14cm of brick or concrete.
In this short program we take six easy steps into life in a community scheme. We look at what makes that life possible.
