Appel de propositions — évènements régionaux 2017 – 2018

L’objectif principal de cette initiative est d’entamer un dialogue entre l’ACÉDI et la communauté élargie des ÉDI, afin de créer des occasions d’apprentissage et de perfectionnement professionnel qui réunissent les étudiants, les spécialistes et les praticiens autour d’enjeux courants sur le thème du développement international.

Le programme Prochaine génération a pour objectif de créer des conditions favorables à une collaboration accrue et plus soutenue entre la société civile et les universitaires. Cette année, l’ACÉDI souhaite appuyer au moins six évènements, pilotés par des étudiants, dans l’ensemble du Canada.

Cet appel de propositions  touche aux évènements qui auront lieu avant la fin d’août 2018, y compris, sans s’y limiter, les activités liées à la Semaine du développement international en février. La date limite pour soumettre une proposition est le 30 novembre 2017. Un panel formé du comité de direction de l’ACÉDI évaluera les propositions en utilisant les critères énumérés ci-dessous. Les propositions retenues pourront recevoir jusqu’à 1000 $ en financement de l’ACÉDI pour couvrir les coûts liés à la logistique, aux déplacements ou aux honoraires des conférenciers.

Les fonds seront versés après l’évènement sur présentation de reçus originaux. Les exigences relatives aux rapports financiers devront également être respectées. D’autres arrangements pourront aussi être considérés. Il est souhaitable que les organisateurs de l’évènement apportent une contribution financière, provenant d’autres sources, à leur activité.

Les évènements seront considérés comme des initiatives de l’ACÉDI et doivent contribuer à sa visibilité
Au moins un des organisateurs doit être un membre en règle de l’ACÉDI

Les évènements devront favoriser l’inclusion et la collaboration  
Ce fonds vise à encourager la collaboration entre les universitaires, les praticiens et les responsables des politiques. Les demandes retenues seront celles qui répondent à cet objectif. Les étudiants du premier cycle et des cycles supérieurs peuvent soumettre une proposition. Il est important d’indiquer le nombre d’étudiants et de professeurs qui participeront à l’évènement.

Call for Proposals – Regional Events 2017 - 2018

The overall purpose of this initiative is to engage with the CASID and broader IDS community to provide opportunities for learning and professional development that bring students, scholars and practitioners together around current issues and themes in international development, in connection with the CASID-CCIC program. This year CASID aims to support at least six student-led regional events across Canada.

This call for proposals is for events that will take place before the end of August 2018, including, but not limited to, those to be held during International Development Week in February. The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2017. A panel of the CASID Executive Committee will assess the proposals on the basis of the criteria below. Selected proposals will qualify for up to $1,000 of funding from CASID, to cover logistics costs, travel and/or external speaker fees. Funding will be disbursed after the event upon submission of original receipts and fulfillment of the reporting requirements. Alternative arrangements may be considered. It is hoped that the event organizers will make every effort to contribute their own funds through other sources.

Events should be considered a CASID initiative and should promote CASID’s profile
One or more event organizers should be in good standing of CASID.

Events should be inclusive and collaborative
The purpose of this fund is to encourage collaboration among academics, practitioners and policy makers. Successful applications will prioritize this aim. Both graduate and undergraduate students may apply. It is important to indicate what level and number of students and faculty will be involved.

Events should be feasible and interesting
Topics should be timely and clearly relevant to international development studies. Proposals should include a plan of activities, speakers, and a budget that is feasible and realistic
