What will my participation in the Academy look like?

The event’s focus is on engagement and interaction – think of the Academy as a giant round table discussion in which each participant speaks about their experiences in terms of “what works” in the realisation of human rights.

There are no formal presentations, only discussions and eye-level exchanges. Regardless of formal position, every participant is an expert in their own right.

The Academy is informal in nature, which means that we do not work with presentations or formal lectures. The main goal of the event is to bring practitioners together at the same table and produce feasible and useful outputs for local governments. We’d like to hear about your daily work experiences and exchange ideas about “what works”, so that we can co-create a tangible output in form of the Outcome Document.
