We are seeking proposals to modernize the design, function and identity of our website at www.earthbeat.sk.ca. The objective is to meet our immediate need for a responsive and engaging website with a small non-profit budget while laying the best groundwork to move forward with larger future goals envisioning an expansion of service.
Established in 1974, the Saskatchewan Council forInternational Cooperation is a small non-profit, charitable organization comprised of members (organizations and individuals) and supporters working for global cooperation, justice and peace. We are actively connected to larger networks and partners with global capacity. We deliver public education and capacity building in Saskatchewan on issues related to sustainable development and global cooperation and provide training, organizing, and limited financial support for our members.
Our Mission: SCIC builds momentum towards a just, equitable, and sustainable world by enhancing the capacity of its members, education and inspiring the public to take action, and creating connections among those we serve.
Our Vision: We want to live in a province of engaged global
citizens, where equality, peace, and justice (on a global scale) are the
motivating principles pushing Saskatchewan toward an equitable societal shift.
Our Recent History: SCIC has recently undergone a re-visioning process in the wake of losing a major funding program, charting a future where we are more collaborative and responsive in order to strengthen our local network.
