Community Indicators for Your Community

Real, lasting community change is built around knowing where you are, where you want to be, and whether your efforts are making a difference. Indicators are a necessary ingredient for sustainable change. And the process of selecting community indicators -- who chooses, how they choose, what they choose -- is as important as the data you select.

The Jacksonville Community Council (JCCI) understands indicators and community change, with more than 25 years of producing the annual Quality of Life Progress Report for Jacksonville and the Northeast Florida region, and two decades of helping other communities develop their own sustainable indicators projects. JCCI consultants give you the information you need to measure progress, identify priorities for action, and assess results.

Call for Training Partners by Global Reporting Initiative

We've talked about the Global Reporting Initiative effort before. I just got a heads-up that the group is looking for partners in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and "Chinese-speaking countries" (someone help me -- is this shorthand for not offending China by naming Taiwan?) Anyway, I know some of you reading this blog fit those geographic criteria, so this message is for you:

Call for Training Partners by Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

On 31 October 2008 the GRI Learning Services Team issued a new call for training partners in Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Chinese-speaking countries. The 'call' will close by the end of January. The application deadline is 31 January 2009, 23:30 CET.

The aim of the 'call' is to select, set agreements with and prepare training partners to deliver GRI certified training programs in their countries or regions. The GRI certified training program aims to disseminate knowledge on sustainability reporting around the world. It has been developed especially to help report makers and users to more effectively use the GRI Framework.
