Proposed Community of Practice for Indicator Practitioners in Canada: A Dinner Discussion
 
 

Canadian ISIN meeting participants are invited to attend a special dinner discussion sponsored by Environment Canada on creating a Community of Practice for Indicator Practitioners in Canada.
 
Environment and Sustainable Development indicators are being used increasingly in Canada and elsewhere to track environmental and sustainable development outcomes in a way that can inform policy and corporate and individual decision-making. The proposed Canadian Community of Practice for Indicator Practitioners is aimed at creating a forum for discussion on research issues and practical problems arising from indicator development in Canada. The concept is to establish a network, which will engage Canadian indicator practitioners in meaningful discussions with colleagues from government agencies, municipalities, community groups, universities, research institutes and non-government organizations. It is hoped that this will stimulate research and development work in the indicator field, allow for consensus building, and encourage efficiencies as we build on the work of each other.
 
Before the ISIN meeting a short working paper will be sent to participants who have signed up for this discussion. Very brief presentations will be made at the dinner including input from the perspective of the existing International Sustainability Indicators Network and Communities of Practice literature. All will be invited to comment and help lend direction to the development of the Community of Practice for Indicator Practitioners in Canada.
 
Preregistration is required. If you are interested in attending this dinner discussion, please indicate so on the ISIN Registration form.
