ITS EDUCATION ASIA ARTICLE


Community dialogue and data

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


Late 2021, we took the first group of students through the UNITAR Youth Ambassador Asia-Pacific Programme. Part of the learning framework was based on the Systems Work of Social Change (Rayner & Bonicci). This emphasized, among other things, the crucial nature of primary actors in successful alleviation of social issues. Essentially, this means that those living the experience are the ones who need to be empowered and equipped to determine and implement the solutions they see fit.

I was struck by the sheer number of case studies in the book and now see further examples in many places. Here is a great case study from the Leave No One Behind Initiative in India, published in IISD. It shows several examples of women from marginalized communities being empowered to at least seed the beginnings of potential remedies to the hardships they face, with a specific focus on healthcare access and all its ramifications.
