Child Friendly Cities Initiative /

by United Nations Children's Fund.

Publisher: Florence UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre 2009Description: HTML.Notes: URL: 'http://www.childfriendlycities.org/' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success response Family & early yearsSummary: "UNICEF's Child-Friendly Cities (CFC) initiative was first conceived in response to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992 and then more vehemently in the meetings leading up to and around the development of the Habitat II meetings in Istanbul in 1996. It came at a time when it was being recognised that the situation of urban children around the world was of critical concern and that discussions on sustainable development, the management of human settlements and the rights of children could not be done in isolation. The emerging child-friendly cities philosophy was underpinned by the view that to actively implement at a national and local government level the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) you needed a healthy environment, good governance and sustainable development. ; The child-friendly cities initiative according to the framework for action document has emerged in recognition of several worldwide trends including the rapid transformation and urbanization of global societies; the growing responsibilities of municipal and community for their populations in the context of decentralisation; and consequently, the increasing importance of cities and towns within the national political and economic systems. The guiding principle behind the initiative is also that safe and supportive environments nurture children of all ages with opportunities for recreation, learning, social interaction, psychological development and cultural expression and promote the highest quality of life for its young citizens."-- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Citizenship and democracy in further and adult education /

by Hopkins, Neil.

Publisher: Dordrecht, The Netherlands Springer 2014Description: xi,178 p.Notes: Bibliography : p. 165-171 Includes indexSummary: This book addresses the questions why citizenship education is an important subject for students in further and adult education and why we need democratic colleges to support the study of citizenship education. It investigates the historical roots of further and adult education and identifies how the adoption of citizenship education in the post-compulsory sector can enrich vocational studies in further education and programmes in adult education. It is argued that democratic colleges are vital to ensure that citizenship education informs the decision-making process throughout educational institutions (and as a means of establishing fair and equal representation for important stakeholders).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Citizenship social work with older people /

by Payne, Malcolm.

Publisher: Bristol, U.K. Policy Press 2012Description: xi, 193p.Notes: Contents: Exploring ageing and older people's lives -- Integrating older people and their services -- Social provision for older people -- Social work skills with older people -- Critical practice with older people -- Creative practice with older people -- Group and macro practice with older people -- Social exclusion issues. Notes:Includes bibliographical references (p. 177-187) and index.Summary: Social work and social care services should treat older people as citizens with the same humanity and rights as every other citizen. That means services of all kinds engaging older people in a fulfilling, creative life in the mainstream of each community. Informed by a wide international literature, Malcolm Payne, a leading social work author, develops a critical and creative social work practice focused on social inclusion to achieve a high quality of life for all older people and explores how advance care planning allows older people to influence the space they live in and the quality of care that they need, and support at the end of life. He shows how integrated services can provide a secure place for older people, with opportunities for personal development and creativity in their lives and that groupwork should be a crucial part of any service to facilitate mutual support and advocacy for older people and their carers. This clearly written and well-structured textbook uses case examples and reflective points to illustrate concepts and will be essential reading for all social work students.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Communication, Creativity and Global Citizenship: Refereed Proceedings of the Australian and New Zealand Communication Association Conference 2009 /

by Flew, Terry (ed.) | Australian and New Zealand Communication Association.

Publisher: Campbell, ACT Australian and New Zealand Communications Association 2009Other title: Australian and New Zealand Communication Association Annual.Summary: The 2009 Australian and New Zealand Communications Association conference (ANZCA09), held at QUT in Brisbane from July 8-10, 2009, brought together 242 communications researchers from 20 countries. The ANZCA09 conference was held at the Creative Industries Precinct at Kelvin Grove, where university staff and facilities are co-located with media businesses, arts companies and residential accommodation, and attracted 200 papers and panel presentations over the three days. ; Digital media technologies enable new modes of social networking and participation that challenge the sender-receiver, producer-consumer orthodoxies of 20th century mass media and mass communication. Meanwhile, the challenges of globalisation and multicultural societies are presenting both the need and the opportunity for new forms of citizenship that cross national boundaries. These challenges raise questions of global citizenship and public communication spaces that require new attention to be given to questions of global media ethics and intercultural communicative capacities.Availability: No items available
