Present: Dana, Michelle, Juliana, James, Gregor, Liam
Activity/Activities for face to face meeting
Identifying common goals
Identifying common needs
Identifying areas of collaboration (beyond the project too)
Retroactively looking at what the partners have been doing
highs/lows/issues/plans - retrospective checkins - think about it ahead of time and share at the meeting
Get to ask questions of each other in larger group
We are experts of our own experience
Community members that are there get the big picture of the project
Important for them to understand the broader picture of the project
Why we (IDRC) want to support their work - Oak too (FOCUS ON LEARNING DIFFERENCES)
E.g. for Giovanna - it’s Karisma that she knows, but she doesn’t know much about IDRC - the economic system behind this, how it works, the NGOs, collaboration, alliance, support etc
Want them to feel a part of the bigger movement
Community members don’t know anything about, say, TIG’s work etc
Idea of social justice, in regards to targeting young people
The space for young people to have dreams - independence, learning, getting income
Not a balanced position - ?
What are the tools we can design together with young people to have a balanced position
How do we use inclusive design as a tool to build the capacity of these young people to be able to succeed
How does ID fit into issues of young people
How can our activities give this experience? Actually do it together
Understanding key stakeholders
Understanding the needs of youth in the various parts of the world and organizations as a basis for discovering common needs and room for collaboration
Share the activities that we’ve done in Rwanda
Create a roadmap - concrete actions
Inclusive design as a social justice tool
How can participants “localise” it?
Create a wiki page to keep agenda/activity ideas for the 10th (Dana)
DEEP retrospective will be good opportunity for participants to see what IDRC does
What hands-on things can we do together?
Ask: how do you understand inclusive design as a social justice tool?
Perhaps we could ask this after doing an activity, like Cause and Effect or other
We have identified the needs - we share these with each other - identify these as social justice issues - what are the emerging issues
The tools we have , how you work - what can be the way forward?
