It takes you step by step through the process of building an effective results table to reach the desired change within the timeframe of your project. While created to reflect Irish Aid’s Results Framework for Development Education Grants rounds, the approach outlined in the tool can be applied to many other Development Education settings. We address common issues and challenges with results-based frameworks. This year multi-annual funding has been reintroduced to the Irish Aid annual Call and we will explore the new timeframe of 1 or 2 year projects when developing your Results Framework.

Political Leadership for Sustainable Development Training

Start Date: 18/10/2019 End Date: 18/10/2019

Event Location: Holiday Inn Express Dublin City Centre (28-32 Upper O’Connell Street, Dublin 1)

Free training for women Councillors in Ireland

IDEA, as part of Bridge 47, has teamed up with Women for Election to provide a free training for women Councillors on political leadership for sustainable development, Saturday 19 October, 9.30am-4.00pm.

The job of Councillors is getting more complex each year. With rising concerns about the impact of climate change, tackling inequality and making sure constituents have access to housing, health and education services, there’s a lot to balance. The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals can help by providing a framework for Councillors to support decision making based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals that aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

This free one-day training will take women Councillors through the Sustainable Development Goals and show them how to use the Goals to evaluate problems and implement solutions for more sustainable development planning in their constituency.

Register here.

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
