I’m curious about how the social location and identities of the social worker might impact the ways in which community development initiatives in this context play out (not really a question, more just a comment for reflection)
Robin Metcalfe
41:31
Thank you for providing so much context. I am wondering what your reflections are on how projects like this can be supported through inter-university partnerships (and interdisciplinary partnerships such as you mentioned with social work and sociologists being recruited) and partnerships such as you mention where social workers (and others in related disciplines) can be in partnership with engineers and government ministries?
Robin Metcalfe
42:32
How can partnerships be promoted, supported, sustained, and built upon going forward? What have you learned from this? Have there been any subsequent outcomes of partnerships?
Julie Drolet
42:32
Great example of the need for inter professional practice with technical experts (e.g., engineers) in green social work.
Emmanuel Chilanga, Dr.

Thanks for the presentation. I am just wondering in this research area who are mainly people in terms of gender that are responsible for water collection. Is the population more concerned with water collection making decisions on this project?

I wonder if you have any connections with a refugee and newcomer serving organsiation, where you could ask the organisation what kind of ‘desk research’ that they might be interested in having completed, and in that way you could be working alongside them, contributing to something that they might need, and also encountering the narratives throughout that are relevant to your interests.

One of the books that I read about ‘international placements’ and the challenges around it is this one by a Canadian researcher at UOttawa, Rebecca Tiessen https://utorontopress.com/ca/globetrotting-or-global-citizenship-4
Julie Drolet

The TFEL partnership is currently developing a new resource to better prepare students for International practicum.

I am curious to know what your thoughts are on apps such as this: https://peacegeeks.org/arrival-advisor. Regarding cultural competency, weighing out its pros and cons on the impacts of those who settle into new countries.
