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).


Below are some of the previous discussions around this initiative:
