Sparks! An open-source collection of social change quotes


Shared Resources and Materials

From Al Etmanski:

I am writing to let you know that with the help of many people I have started a new website devoted exclusively to social change quotations. The collection is called SPARKS! It seeks to amplify the voices of women, Indigenous people and those who experience disability.

It is not yet the world’s largest collection of social change quotes. But, with your help, I hope it will be. So please spread the word. 

The website is “open source” which means you are invited to add to the collection by submitting your favourite quotations.

It is also “minimum specs,” which means there are roughly 2000 quotes in 80 categories. I’d appreciate your feedback on the usefulness and accessibility of the design. Let me know if you spot any errors or what changes you would make.

As someone who has subscribed to my weekly blogs you will know that I end every post with a quotation. Whenever I sit down to write I make sure that I am surrounded by quotations. They shine a light on what I am trying to write.

May these quotations light your way too!

Thanks and take care,
Al

What's the difference between stakeholders and community engagement?


ABCD and Community Organizing/Engagement

John Hamerlinck:

Anyone who feels the impact of a policy, or a situation is a stakeholder whether they are engaged or not. Any stakeholder who is "engaged" assumes responsibility and risk in order to create change.

Interesting comment about assuming responsibility and risk... do you think organizations think about that when they talk about needing to focus on "community engagement" through their work, projects, or initiatives?

Frameworks for capturing impacts of ABCD


Tips, Tools, Strategies, and Technology

Dee Brooks:

Hi Ian,

I undertook some complementary work in Indonesia, alongside Alison from Coady, with the Islamic universities over a couple of years... I have Alison's M&E final report that I'm sure she wouldn't mind sharing (she's now retired), if you would like a copy?

Also, I have added your conversation to the ABCD in Action Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/429625007423984/

Regards,

Dee...

Hey Dee - if you think it's ok with Alison, can you post that final report here as well?  Thanks!

Deb

Happy Holidays! What do you celebrate? How do you celebrate?


Connecting to each other

December and January are filled with holidays. Around the world, people and communities celebrate their faith, their cultures, their beliefs, and their values through "holidays". What holidays you celebrate? What traditions or rituals are important to you this time of year? Most importantly, what food is symbolic of your celebrations (because food is often the center of community)?

Share your thoughts and experiences here.
