Description

The session will set the scene and provide a general understanding of the importance of learning for professionals and leaders, specifically in local governments. The session will share some insights about the importance of the concept of learning behaviour and learning within cities. It will be also the opportunity to explore the challenges we haves as a learning network and link learning to decentralized cooperation.
Through a discussion with all the participants, the session will explore the way ahead for the UCLG Learning Agenda and remind the key elements for learning: work with good strategies, have quality facilitation and build partnerships. Learning is part of a general evolution in society, in mind-sets, in relations, in communication, in decision making, in marketing, and last but not least, in the ways services are provided in responds to the changing demands.
