Mobilizing Evidence for Human Rights and the Social Development Goals
Call for Content #CKF18
WORD form to contribute content: CKF18 Call for Content Form
Please use one form per contribution – multiple contributions are accepted
We are inviting practitioners, researchers, academics, activists, social innovators, research funders, science educators and communicators, citizen scientists, policy-makers, non-governmental organizations, artists, interested community groups, and citizens to share their views and experience on innovative activities in knowledge mobilization.
The theme for 2018 is: Mobilizing Evidence for Human Rights and the Social Development Goals
Knowledge Mobilization is often described as making the best of what we know, whether from research, assessed practice, or traditional knowledge, ready for others to use so that new value can be created.
The framework created by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Social Development Goals, and other social justice declarations are a deeply useful structure to help move knowledge into action.
The theme for 2018 focuses us on how to be better together. We invite participation that will push thinking and engagement of the knowledge mobilization community further. You can present and connect with any other subject matter areas covered by the discussion on human rights and social development goals. We encourage you to share how your work, for example, in healthcare links to sustainable communities, or economic growth links to clean water, helps end poverty, creates equality etc.
Let us share the best of what we practice to improve our collective well-being.
The Forum will be hosted at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
We are driven by an objective of allowing you to design your own conference experience that reflects your interests, experience, priorities and learning styles. Drawing on the assets of the Province of Manitoba’s Capital – Winnipeg, leaders in knowledge mobilization from all across Canada and beyond, it is our hope you will come away from CKF18 enriched, energized and engaged in this field like never before.
