Learning Events

The GGLN supports two types of learning events; local learning exchanges and regional learning events. Full members of the GGLN may apply for grants that fall within these two types of programmes.

Learning Exchanges

In order to encourage peer learning amongst the members of the GGLN, the network provides financial assistance to individuals from GGLN member organisations to visit other member organisations of the network (or a municipality) to learn more about particular programmes or projects of the organisation, or to participate in specific workshops or events organised by the organisation. The nature and format of the learning exchanges that are eligible for support are flexible and creative proposals are encouraged. Examples include staff visiting other organistions to learn about particular projects, programmes or approaches, or attending specific workshops, seminars, or events organised by other organisations. We also envisage that organistions could create opportunities for staff from other organisations to spend some time at their organisation, learning about a particular aspect of the work that it does. Applications from members to undertake learning visits to municipalities will also be considered. 


Learning Events

The GGLN will support members to organise and host/co-host learning events. The learning events can take a variety of forms, including workshops, seminars, roundtables and training courses. The themes around which the events are based generally need to be aligned to the key thematic issues of interest to the GGLN, which include public participation, transparency and access to municipal information, political systems, processes and accountability, corruption and maladministration, Integrated Development Planning (IDP), service delivery, poverty alleviation, Local Economic Development (LED), performance management, and municipal finances and budgeting. Preference will be given to supporting events on topics within or across these themes, and which have national relevance.
