Part 1: “Why Community-Based Research is Important for Positive Societal Change – the Canadian Perspective”
June 5, 2018 at 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET
A report released a few months ago, Maximizing the Capacities of Advanced Education Institutions to Build Social Infrastructure for Canadian Communities, highlights the role that our universities and other post-secondary institutions can, and should, play in addressing the challenges and uncertainties that threaten social cohesion and community well-being in Canada and beyond.
Part 2: “Why Community-Based Research is Important for Positive Societal Change – the International Perspective”
July 3rd, 2018 at 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET
Community-based research is widely accepted and practiced across the world as an approach to solving local challenges in locally relevant and appropriate ways with the people that are most affected. University activists and civil society practitioners have been documenting the positive impacts of community-based research for decades, and there is no shortage of illustrative examples to show this.
Part 3: “Why Community-Based Research is Important for Positive Societal Change – Toward Achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals”
August 22nd, 2018 at 9 AM PT/ 12 PM ET
Many of us are aware of the UN SDGs, the 17 goals adopted by 176 nations which provide the world with an agenda for action on the critical issues of our day including attention to education, gender justice, inequality, water, health for all, peace and many more. The SDGs follow on the previous Millennial Development Goals that ended in 2015.
