In recent years, there has been a growing interest and expansion of compassionate community experiences. Although all experiences share the same philosophy and vision, different approaches and models have been adopted for their realization. Through the article Community Based Participatory Research for the Development of a Compassionate Community: The Case of Getxo Zurekin, the researchers present the results of the Getxo Zurekin case study research as an example of a model of community participation, in which the identification and demands for a more integrated and sustainable model of care emerge through collective and community sense-making.
The research argues that the social fabric and network that sustain these spaces of compassion is not delocalizable and represents a unique human and relational capital to give birth to social innovations that contribute to individual and collective well-being.
