Movement Strategy/Global Approach for Local Skill Development
This initiative was one of the priorities (from the initiative cluster C) selected for global implementation during the Movement Strategy Transition events. It was also widely-prioritized by local communities and affiliates, especially emerging ones.
Content from the recommendation:
Create a systematic, global approach to skill development for local communities, their people, and their organizations. This requires us to:
- Establish a methodology that maps assets and needs and generates aggregated data for deploying skills development initiatives based on real needs.
- Establish a service that facilitates connecting/matching peers across the Movement for teaching and learning skills (e.g. peer-learning, networking, and pooling of information from partners and allies).
- Encourage a diversity of methods, including training, mentoring, consulting, online learning, peer-to-peer support, and events.
- Create incentives for skill development (online and offline) through the recognition of skills (e.g. through open badges).
