This chapter looks at networking as something that most people get involved in, in their everyday lives, namely they develop and maintain links with a selection of the people they encounter in their work, where they live or in the course of social or leisure activities. It indicates the key elements and tactics for successful and sustainable networking. It emphasises the importance of interpersonal relationships and face-to-face interaction, arguing that the work involved in networking should be properly appreciated as contributing to the development of community capacity and effective partnerships.

Keywords:   community development, sustainable networking, interpersonal relationships, face-to-face interaction, effective partnerships
