Peer Learning

Peer-Learning means learning between cities as equals!

The objectives of peer-learning are the transfer of knowledge, skills and experience from one municipality to others. This can entail technical assistance to solve specific municipal challenges, benchmarking to inspire change, or other forms of peer support.

During a peer-learning event, participants listen actively and share their stories and experiences. Participants are students and advisers at the same time which makes a peer-learning event different to “classical” forms of learning where the student has a more passive role.

Since the first peer learning exchange in Durban in 2011, UCLG has been promoting peer learning as a platform for sharing experiences and enhancing capacity building. Reporting the outcomes of learning events is essential to guarantee the knowledge transfer. Therefore we prepare and publish reports, – “Peer-Learning Notes”, for each event to make the acquired knowledge accessible for everybody accessible.

In this sense we also indicate the use platform, developed by Berlim and Metropolis. There you can find a vast range of successful urban public policies and solutions, contact their focal points and implement future Peer-Learning.
