Unit 3. Building successful networks

There are no set concepts for setting up networks, e.g. such as for rural areas or high-density areas like in some metropolitan regions. If your monastery is located in a rural area, be aware that transfer of urban ideas for networks should not be used – rural and urban are totally different. Before setting up local networks you really need to know your area and your local communities well.  You also should make sure that everyone locally will be happy with what is being planned. There is nothing worse than not getting total support locally.
