This annotated bibliography includes literature from different countries and regions on the subject of CBR and water governance, with a particular focus on training. The selected literature is categorized within five closely linked typologies, including: 1. Training in Community Based Research in Water Governance; 2. Citizen Science and Water Governance; 3. Participatory Water Governance; 4. Training in Formal Education Programs using Participatory and Community Based Research; and 5. Training in Participatory Research Models for Civil Society and Practitioners.

These resources were compiled by Jessica Jin and Kelly Sharp, graduate students from the University of British Columbia under the guidance of Drs. Leila Harris (UBC) and Crystal Tremblay (University of Victoria).

«Identidades Locales y Ciudadanía Global: Un mensaje desde Catania y un desafío para las Universidades»

El sexto comunicado de Big Tent – ¿dónde y por qué?
Big Tent es un grupo de redes a nivel regional, nacional y global que comparte un interés en el compromiso entre la Universidad y la Comunidad y la Responsabilidad Social de la Educación Superior y que ha acordado realizar declaraciones cada cierto tiempo.

El primer comunicado de Big Tent, sobre el compromiso entre las universidades y las comunidades, tuvo su foco en la cooperación Norte-Sur y fue realizado en 2010. Este nuevo comunicado proviene de la reflexión sobre la celebración de la Conferencia Anual de Pascal International Observatory del 7 al 9 de Octubre de 2015 en Catania, Sicilia ‘en la frontera de la fortaleza Europa’. Su tema ha sido cómo las ciudades y sus regiones están conectadas con sus universidades en fronteras estratégicas.

UNESCO Chair on Community Based Research & Social Responsibility in Higher Education

We live in uncertain and complex times; citizens around the world are asking their leaders for answers to their daily travails.

The civilizational crises at this juncture of human history are manifested in three distinct, yet interrelated, trends. First, the scale of material prosperity achieved by many households and communities is unprecedented in human history; material well-being, quality of life, longevity of consumption and accumulation of wealth has reached mind-boggling levels today. Yet, such prosperity co-exists with unprecedented and widespread deprivations; shocking as it may seem, deprivation within seas of prosperity can be found around all societies today. If humanity has the means to generate such wealth and material well-being for some, how come those means are not applied for the well-being of all?. Más información
