August 1 marks the launch of the second cohort of the Knowledge for Change (K4C) Global Consortium’s Mentor Training Program. The mentors will undergo a rigorous 21-week training program that involves online and face to face modules, and a field based CBPR project that will be locally contextualized and in line with one of the UN SDGs. The second cohort will be offering learning opportunities on how to teach CBPR for mentors from Malaysia, Uganda, India, Tanzania and Canada. The K4C Global Consortium is designed to build CBPR capacity in both the global South and the excluded North. Our work within the Consortium is linked to the achievement of the UN SDGs. The residency for this cohort will be held in Victoria and Vancouver/Surrey, both communities on the West Coast of Canada linked by the Salish Sea and located on the traditional territories of the Coast and Straits Salish First Nations.
