At this critical time, when data are needed more than ever to ground civic discourse and effective policy-making, the Community Indicators Consortium is pleased to offer our first eConference, A Knowledge Exchange: From Data to Impact. Bringing together individuals, organizations and public agencies from across the globe, it offers expert presentations, promising practices, shared learning and networking.
Why an eConference? Online events invite us to gather in time but not space, and provide a virtual place to expand our networks and further our practice without paying travel costs.
Over the last three decades, hundreds of communities have launched community indicators projects in the US, Canada, Mexico, the EU, Africa, Korea, Australia and Latin America. Residents and policy makers alike want reliable data about local conditions and macro trends affecting their communities to create and monitor effective action plans.
The Community Indicators Consortium (CIC) is a network of people and organizations from around the world using indicators of progress to guide community change. The goals of CIC
are to:
● Advance the art and science of indicators;
● Facilitate the exchange of knowledge about indicator projects;
● Further understanding about how to create effective action plans and policies inspired by community indicators and performance measures; and
● Foster informed dialogue about local, regional, national and global priorities.
