The goal is to create a network of urban practitioners with a high level of expertise in administration, politics as well as business, science and civil society.
Dialogue and learning programmes such as workshops, training courses and study tours mobilise German and international know-how and facilitate experiences to be shared. The presentation of good practices enables practitioners to learn from one another. In discussions, colleagues offer advice on options to address topical challenges that practitioners face. Common project ideas point to approaches to the development of innovative solutions.
In this manner, experience gained by urban actors in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe in sustainable urban development is disseminated and contributed to international learning processes. The efficiency of municipal actors is further strengthened, and at the same time, the potential for initiative in German international cooperation is promoted.
The continuous orientation of the International Community of Practice for Sustainable Urban Development on sharing of practice- oriented experience via effective and applied solutions supports a learning process that consistently draws on practice and creates new synergies. Connective Cities acts as a facilitator, mediator and moderator of these processes. In addition, the process is supported virtually by the Connective Cities Web Portal.
