Building Community-Based Evaluation Capacity to Advance Sustainable Development Goals
This website has resources to help grassroots communities, small start-ups, and community-based organizations build a culture of reflective practice when working to eliminate violence and promote peaceful and equitable societies. While this particular website focuses on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 4 (quality education), 5 (gender equity) and 16 (peace), resources can be used to support community-based evaluation efforts across all 17 SDGs.
This is a project is co-led by the Centre for Community Based Research and Conrad Grebel University College at the University of Waterloo. This project is funded by Employment and Social Development Canada, and works towards implementing Canada's 2030 Agenda.
How this website was built:
Over one year, we piloted capacity-building workshops, coaching sessions and workbooks with community-based organizations in the Waterloo Region;
Adapted workshops into webinars for national reach; and
Dialogued with and learned from others working towards Canada's 2030 Agenda
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who continue to have an unresolved interest in the lands within 6 miles of the Grand River, an area that includes our location at the University of Waterloo. In the spirit of reconciliation, we are committed to interrogating the relationship between the SDGs and the broader efforts of Truth and Reconciliation outlined in the Calls to Action.
