On the 8th of August, ACDA and Hui E! hosted a workshop in Wellington.
Hui E! and ACDA joined together on a research project to find out what behaviours and processes contribute to quality funding relationships. One of the activities participants engaged in was the card games, which helped in the research for social change.
The research is about addressing the imbalance of power between funding bodies and NGOs, and allowing the development of more healthy and respectful relationships. We are really grateful to have Hui E! and those who have participated in the workshops join along side ACDA while we are in the process of our research.

Here are some of the photos from the day of the workshop!

A huge thank you to everyone who attended the workshop and actively participated in the activities.
Recently, ACDA developed a workshop 'The Future of our Communities and Community Development in the future' which aimed to educate participants on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 

On the 18th of August, ACDA and the Hamilton City Council hosted the workshop to Community Development professionals from the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions.

The workshop involved a diverse range of members from the community sector, as well as the governmental Department of Internal Affairs.

The workshop was designed to bring the participants up to date on the SDGs. It was an opportunity for members exchange ideas and brainstorm in small groups and as a whole, the areas their organisations are working on, in relation to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Below are some of the photos from the workshop.

A huge thank you to the participants who attended the workshop and actively participated in the activities. Thank you for the feedback on the evaluation sheets and we hope you enjoyed the workshop as much as we did.
