    Are you interested in taking part in an international research project? Prior to the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA)/International Association of Counselling (IAC) 2019 Conference in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada (May 13 – 16, 2019), the IAC Research Roundtable (Chaired by Dr. Courtland Lee with Dr. Bill Borgen) is reaching out to associations and colleagues to join us at our first Go to Meeting, scheduled for Thursday December 13 at 11 AM EST. Come to this meeting with some ideas so that we can start to generate topics and connections. You will be asked to speak 2 to 3 minutes about your ideas. Please send your ideas ahead of the date so that we can send out a summary sheet to all participants (send to blythe.shepard@uleth.ca).

    This meeting will be followed by a second Go to Meeting in January where we will continue to assist you to develop ideas and connections to other researchers.  Research ideas already suggested include:

    • International Mapping and Advocacy of Career Counselling
    • International Mapping and Advocacy of Clinical Supervision

    There will be time at the CCPA/IAC 2019 Conference in Moncton to meet face to face with your team (or via Go to Meeting) to firm up ideas and to identify a team leader for your group. IAC will assist in continuing to meet once the conference is over by introducing "cool tools" for connecting (e.g., Zoom, Google docs) and by identifying "point people" to help you keep on track.

    During the roundtable in Moncton, newcomers who have not participated in the Go to Meetings will also be welcome to bring their research ideas.

    National Committee of the Australian Division of the Eastern Regional Organisation for Planning and Human Settlements (EAROPH), to invite your members to our Second International Congress on Implementing the New Urban Agenda (NUA) in Newcastle, Australia, from 13 November 2018 - see brochure.

    This year's theme is Affordable and Sustainable Living in the City. This congress builds on the very successful inaugural congress held in Melbourne in 2017, and the standing congress that was formed afterwards.  At the congress website you will find the themes: leaving nobody behind, building for durability and sustainability, looking after the planet, and shaping our communities. 

    The 2018 congress will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and researchers from across Australia and South East Asia. The congress keynote will be Ms. Maimunah Mohd Sharif, the new Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UNHabitat).

    This year's congress is being curated by a consortium led by: 

    • EAROPH; 
    • Compass Housing 
    • UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network Youth Initiative; and also
    • RMIT University's Centre for Urban Research.

    As you may be aware, in 2016, world leaders adopted the NUA. The NUA is intended to set a new global standard for sustainable urban development, and help us rethink how we plan, manage and live in cities. The NUA is a roadmap for building cities that can serve as engines of prosperity and centres of cultural and social wellbeing, while protecting the environment. The SDGs, which form part of the NUA, are 17 goals, agreed at the United Nations in 2016, to be met by the global community by 2030 on a range of human, social, ecological, and economic development indicators. These SDGs are core to your organisation’s mission.
