June 20 SJRK Partners Meeting Notes
Liam, Silvia, Dana, Alan, Jess, Michelle
We each shared updates about our current work plan
Child safeguarding policy
We have sent a draft of the policy to Oak
Could we make it open and accessible as a way to apply the ideas of this project to the doc itself?
Template is constrained by Oak
We could include another version in our toolkit
The policy applies to everyone who works on this project
Should policy align with policies in each country?
We are waiting to hear back from Oak and Keeping Children Safe and once we do will have better idea of timeline - probably ~1 month
Any input or feedback from partners in that time frame
Alan will send out the policy draft to the partners
Want your input about how to implement Oak’s ideas:
"A way of contributing relevant resources"
"A way of contributing stories"
"A means of identifying challenges we want to address within SJRK"
"A strategy for connecting different youth groups who have similar interests"
Possible new tools
Liam - TIG
Youth Action Guides
Toolkit to allow youth to act on SDGs
Revising original MDG action guides
Providing content about inclusion in an inclusive way
Indigenous Story Gathering
Canada 150 - indigenous youth stories
~20 groups over the summer producing videos about their communities
Communities all over Canada - through Connected North
Silvia - FUTCO
Work with young people in 3 regions in Columbia - Cauca, Manizales, North Columbia
Main issues to address:
Diversity - is not accepted as a value
Environment - industries exploiting environment, why important to care for the environment
Entrepreneurship - peace agreement signed between army and guerrilla movement last year left 12,000 former guerrillas in need of work - the government is promoting entrepreneurship, young people need new opportunities
One of best ways to work is through playing e.g. games with augmented reality - creating the games together with youth as best way to engage them
Also want to create web-based content - to support these 3 things
Currently defining work plan, working with Karisma
We want to relate everything back to youth with learning differences, and informal learning environments and practices
