Transformations Photojournalism Initiative 2018
Transformations is an award-winning collaborative photojournalism project intended to increase dialogue and further understanding of international partnerships that address complex global challenges. Through individual and organizational stories, the Ontario Council for International Cooperation invites you to actively engage in a new narrative on international cooperation and solidarity. 
This narrative is rooted in the Istanbul Principles for CSO Development Effectiveness, a set of mutually shared values guiding the development work of civil society organizations (CSOs) worldwide. These include to:
  • respect and promote human rights and social justice;
  • embody gender equality and equity while promoting women and girls' rights;
  • focus on people's empowerment, democratic ownership and participation;
  • promote environmental sustainability;
  • practice transparency and accountability;
  • pursue equitable partnerships and solidarity;
  • create and share knowledge and commit to mutual learning; and
  • commit to realizing positive sustainable change.
