A peer learning Practice Sharing Day was held on 26 September 2007 as part of the European Commission Capacity Building Project ‘Building Local Capacity to Broaden Engagement in Global Issues’, a three year project funded by the European Commission. Within the terms of the project there will be six peer learning events over three years to address the topics of engaging hard to reach groups, extending learning to wider beneficiaries, and building the capacity of NGOS to implement this work. These will be specifically addressed by looking at:
- Introducing global issues with specific target groups
- Facilitating participatory methodologies
- Ensuring a range of perspectives are promoted.
This is a report on the first of these events. It was held six months into the project and attendance was open to people representing organisations involved in the ECCB project and the wider DEA membership.
