Kommun (Swedish for Township) iti (Maori for Small) Kommuniti – Small Townships

Welcome to Kommuniti and our Suburb Circles
We care about, You, Your Neighbours, and Your Neighbours, Neighbours

If your family is your world, your home is your sanctity, and you see opportunity in your community? Then Kommuniti is the place for you.

What is Kommuniti
It takes a village to raise a child is a well-known African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience well-being and grow into contributing adults.

The global pandemic of 2020 showed us the value of connectedness for our well-being, and how human we are in wanting to be together, nurture, and support each other.

Community Wealth Building (CWB) is a means to Community Wellbeing and whilst first implemented in Cleveland Ohio USA was then successfully duplicated in Preston, Lancashire, UK.  They were turned into ‘Models’ for building community wealth and led to the establishment of the CLES, Community Wealth Building Centre of Excellence in Manchester UK.

CWB has now reached Australia and makes up the 5 principles behind our Purpose, to build community wealth and wellbeing in our Kommuniti Hubs.

  • Plural ownership of our localised economy
  • Making financial power work or local places
  • Fair employment and just labour markets
  • Progressive procurement of goods and services
  • Socially productive use of land and property

At Kommuniti HQ we began walking the talk for Community Wealth Building back in January 2020 within the Local Government Authority (LGA) of Joondalup, Western Australia, and specifically the suburb of Kingsley 6026.

Our Founder then integrated himself into the City of Joondalup community engagement network and became the strategic community reference group member for the southeast ward, participating in a number of meetings and co-design workshops.

One of the facilitators captured the vision for the next 10 years in this graphic. 

The graphic shows what residents in the South of the City of Joondalup want to see, feel and hear between 2022 and 2032.

Our Joondalup LGA Virtual Kommuniti Hub meets these residents where they are at today and aligns them with our collaborative vision for tomorrow.

Utilising a number of social media platforms we have quickly built up a network of over 3000 residents, with more than 1300 residing in our Kingsley 6026 circle.

Our virtual Kommuniti Hubs are now offering these members an opportunity to participate in many of our planned Meetups, Groups, Activities, Workshops, and Events that bring communities closer together.

Our Joondalup LGA Virtual Kommuniti Hub FREE membership includes.........

Volunteering
We are looking for leaders to put the unity back into community. The skills and experience of volunteers found in local communities are second to none and can have a compounding effect far greater than people who may be employed but do not live in the area.

Community Leadership is such an important aspect of any community venture, it is often through individual leaders that seeds of an idea begin to germinate and grow.
