TIG - consultation across campuses in Canada - to see how action guides can be implemented
How elements of the guide can be brought to life
Both working on SDGs
Current projects on SDG at UWEZO - youth with disabilities - monitoring and documenting the SDGs in Rwanda
Focus on employment, education and health
Documenting best practice
Contextualize SDGs in Rwandan context
Not yet fully integrated into the work there yet
Training on SDGs, home visits, school visits
Many young people out of school, working in informal sector (not legally recognised work)
Want business skills
How can we do business better?
1st objective - a guide on how to do business
2nd - youth organisations
How are they doing? How do they choose their activities? Etc
They requested a guide
How to integrate youth with learning differences in their programs
How to provide platforms for their voices
SDGs collaboration is possibly a 3rd piece?
There may be some cross-cutting elements
Question of budget - not sure it’s enough to do all of the above
Could probably be 30k
Need to draw up a budget
Need to prioritize
Where are the points of connection and collaboration with TIG?
TIG could help with finding/accessing inclusion guides - the guide Liam is building could be one of those resources
Understanding the Rwandan context - UWEZO
Feedback (Phase 2) - useful for TIG to know
Maybe this would fit into a future guide
Align the type of support that TIG can offer with what is needed
SDGs are cross-cutting, UWEZO already working on this, but maybe this is an opportunity to scale up
Can “test out” the guide that TIG is working on - does it work in this context? Other communities?
A follow-up between TIG and UWEZO working together on SDGs?
Liam and Bahati to meet and discuss further?
Liam going to Korea on Thursday - SDG 4.7 - transformational education
Back on the 24th
4.7 by 2030 ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development
interesting to analyse this from the perspective of learners with various needs
Youth empowerment program - UWEZO was involved
UWEZO interested in collaboration with TIG!
They bring practical experience
Young people taking the lead
Next conversation when Liam is back (Feb 25th)
TIG set up MOUs for broader collaboration? To be explored...
