Dialogue events and practitioners' workshops

Core elements for sharing experiences and a basis for the development of project ideas

The Connective Cities dialogue events and workshops for practitioners are core elements of exchange between municipal practitioners in the Community of Practice in the thematic field of sustainable urban development.  A practice-oriented exchange of experiences on effective solutions and approaches opens up new learning opportunities that are processed by and then fed into the Community of Practice. This generates a learning cycle that reinforces itself while simultaneously creating new synergies among participants. These event formats frequently become the starting points for long-term, multilateral learning processes. The latter, in their turn, forge local change projects.

For the running of international dialogue events, Connective Cities has developed an approach that is both participatory and practice-oriented. This enables identification and dissemination of Good Practices, and lays foundations for future project activities leading to innovative solutions for sustainable urban development. This methodological approach is described in detail in the Guide to our dialogue events.

In the following, you will find detailed documentations on the dialogue events and practitioners workshops that have been run so far.
