With community, university and government partners, we are embarking on research and action that helps create the conditions for healthy, vibrant communities in Nova Scotia and beyond that are self-reliant and socially just.
Over a decade ago, the persistence and injustice of food insecurity in Nova Scotia catalyzed a partnership among the Nova Scotia Nutrition Coun­cil, the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre, and Nova Scotia Family Resource Centres and Projects, resulting in the Nova Scotia Participatory Food Costing Projects.
In 2006, the collaboration expanded to launch the Nova Scotia Food Security Network and additional participatory research projects and activities.
FoodARC (Food Action Research Centre) emerged in 2012 to replace the Participatory Action Research and Training Centre on Food Security as the latest step in the evolution of many deep, cross-sectoral relationships and significant research activities working to better understand and build food security in Nova Scotia and beyond.
FoodARC wants to continue to work with local, regional, national and international partners to strengthen relationships, share resources and knowledge, and work together across disciplines as a network of activists and researchers to create social justice, healthy, and vibrant communities. Associated with the Department of Applied Human Nutrition, FoodARC continues the strong Mount tradition of research and community-engaged scholarship in supporting social responsibility, the advancement of women, and preparing students for global citizenship.

LOS CIUDADANOS que tienen como proposito aportar soluciones individual o colectivamente a algunas de estas cuestiones actuan a traves de la llamada Responsabilidad Social Individual. La idea "se el cambio que quieres ver en el mundo" motiva a muchas personas de todas las generaciones, personas que quieren aportar su granito de arena y son activos en las distintas facetas de su vida para provocar mejoras sociales.
El tercer ambito de actuacion desde el que se puede crear impacto social es el Educativo, a traves de la RESPONSABILIDAD SOCIAL DE LAS UNIVERSIDADES (RSU).
La Universidad, como cualquier otra organizacion, debe gestionar de forma responsable su actividad y su relacion con los diferentes grupos de interes: profesores, investigadores, personal de administracion y servicios, estudiantes, administraciones publicas y sociedad en general. Por ultimo es importante mencionar el papel de de las INVERSIONES SOCIALES Y LAS INVERSIONES SOCIALEMENTE REPONSABLES (ISR). La ISR es una formula de inversion que, sin renunciar a la rentabilidad, permite al ahorrador dirigir su excedente hacia aquellas empresas que contribuyen positivamente a un desarrollo justo y equilibrado.
Las inversiones eticas utilizan los instrumentos que proporciona el sistema financiero convencional para canalizar recursos hacia iniciativas y proyectos en los que se conjugan criterios de rentabilidad economica y social.
En definitiva, son instrumentos alternativos y complementarios de financiacion para la accion social y el desarrollo que en algunos casos permiten al inversor reforzar sus derechos de propiedad como accionista. This view on leadership is inclusive and is essential to creating a better world for us all. To support this view of leadership, the CCE collaborates with a variety of community organizations to offer civic engagement experiences for every WSU students.

The Social Change Model is visualized as a model consisting of three components ( individual, group, and society) and seven values, known as the seven C’s. In the SCM, an individual can enter the process at any point: as an individual, as part of a group, or as a member of society. These words can quickly conjure up a strong response (both positive and negative) from those who hear them.
For myself, I know I thought issues of devotion should be kept strictly separate from the groups I was a part of and the work we did. Honestly, I was probably scared of these discussions so I just avoided them or stopped listening when they came up. It seemed fine for other folks to have their own beliefs, but to actually have some form of spiritual practice integrated into the group?
Over this past year I began to notice a few activists here and there, in person and through their written works, stating the need for organizers to incorporate some level of spiritual practice into their work. I want to highlight some of these activists and show why spirituality (or whatever you choose to call the understanding of meaning in personal and collective existence) has a strong role to play in supporting our changemaking work.
Through the words of these changemakers, I’ll illustrate how these practices could help mainstream organizing better learn to aid its members, build a more resilient movement, and be in line with the world we aim to create. Adjoa Florencia Jones de Almeida notes that one reason for this is “Among activist circles on the Left, there is often a silent, sometimes condescending disapproval of talk about faith.
Instead, we should proactively find ways to incorporate spirituality as a propelling force in our activism, as opposed to pushing away the sacred to reactionary entities.
As the quote at the beginning of this section promotes “spirituality can provide us with a new foundation for our work.” For those of us without as much experience combining the spiritual and changemaking, the opportunity now is to figure out how to do so. So if you are a little curious about the idea of incorporating spiritual practice into your changemaking work, the following ideas give a few concrete practices to consider.
How often do we see or feel “activist burnout?” Thich Nhat Hahn’s point shows us that there is a another way to facilitate our organizations. We must build in organizational structures to aid people in meeting their own needs, both spiritual and otherwise. Faith leaders from many religious backgrounds show how spirituality can play a vital role in bringing about all forms of justice, from environmental to economic.
These religious representatives show that some from institutionalized religions have a clear recognition of systemic oppression and are working to undermine it.
As the previous point shows, many from established religions seek to dismantle oppression, so we have many supporters as we respectfully and conscientiously address unjust attitudes and actions. This also means we have develop our skills in applying spiritual practice to our changemaking work.
With preparation, intentionality, and practice you’ll be on your way to invigorating conversations about faith and life. Now it will take a lot more than just a few discussions to truly integrate spirituality into our organizing efforts. We must continue to seek out new ways to reduce the disconnect between activism and our personal lives. It’s essential to support our spiritual and personal lives if we want to continue this organizing work for the long-term.

As many topics here at Organizing Change, incorporating spiritual practice into our organizing is a tough subject. What thoughts do you have about how we can better adopt spirituality into our organizing work? Drew Serres began working on Organizing Change to combine his dedication to showing impactful organizing practices with his passion for learning. Well I know the way I bring spirituality into my own life is through daily practices: setting intentions in the morning, writing gratitudes at night, meditation, etc. Subscribe to Organizing Change Want Organizing Change's weekly newsletter delivered to your inbox?

Patty Williams was awarded a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Food Security and Policy Change and founded the Participatory Action Research and Training Centre on Food Security (PARTC-FS) at Mount Saint Vincent. Sin embargo, actualmente esta presente en las agendas de los politicos, los jovenes emprendedores, las grandes empresas y las universidades mas reputadas, asi como en las estrategias de los inversores y de todos los ciudadanos interesados en buscar respuestas a los grandes retos a los que se enfrenta nuestro planeta. Aqui analizaremos las diferentes politcas, estrategias y actividades relacionadas con el concepto de RSU.
Suponen un importante compromiso social del inversor, ya que permiten canalizar ahorro hacia proyectos o empresas que contribuyen al desarrollo en paises empobrecidos asi como hacia organizaciones o sectores excluidos del credito y la financiacion dentro de los paises desarrollados.
Through the Social Change Model of Leadership (SCM), leadership rests on the values of equity, social justice, self-knowledge, personal empowerment, collaboration, citizenship, and service. The CCE uses the SCM as a lens with which to understand community engagement and change. We seek to provide students an opportunity to learn about themselves through learning about the components of their community.
We must understand how to authentically reconnect the issues of the spirit and the issues of injustice. My first guess of how to find the intersection is to build practices like this into organizations and groups doing changemaking work. This post was one of my first steps towards thinking about this topic, but I hope to expand on these 5 ideas on a future post.
