Using the analogy of a cookbook, CWY has compiled a number of “recipes” to inspire a few light and tasty public engagement activities focused on the areas of health, the environment and equity.
Some recipes are quick and easy to prepare, like public engagement appetizers, while others require more cooks in the kitchen and more time to bake! As in any cookbook, a chef can pick and choose from the recipes available. We hope the CWY Cookbook inspires you to engage Canadians of all ages in a meaningful and impactful way. Bon appétit!
Many agree that the gold of the 21st century will be blue. Water is the source of life and, unfortunately, an exhaustible resource. This guide was developed to raise awareness on water issues and provide guidelines for educators, teachers and youth to prepare workshops on those same topics.
The objectives of the Sources workshops are to:
- create an open and comfortable environment that will allow youth to learn and share their thoughts on the topic of water
- create awareness amongst youth around water management and conservation
- engage youth and encourage them to take action, pass on their knowledge and offer these workshops to their peers.
- This resource was created by six CWY alumni, partnering Canadian organizations and CWY’s Honduran partner, ASONOG, with the participation of community members in Honduras.
This guide was designed by the Honduras –Hamilton women’s Youth Leaders in Action program in 2011 in order to give youth, educators and parents an idea of what to expect of a women’s international youth program. It is an introduction to what makes a women’s exchange different from any other. It contains information about the importance of women’s programs, how to break stereotypes related to women and feminism, as well as additional educational components.
The guide covers topics such as:
- Empowering women
- Culture and gender
- Impact of a women’s program on the host community
- Broadening perspectives
