Learning Café HUM57
Cross-fertilisation of Ideas and Peer Learning at/for the Humanitarian Sector
Date Thursday, Dec 6 Time – Room Schöneberg
There are numerous UN initiatives to improve organisational culture in the humanitarian sector and create timely, flexible mobile learning. In this Learning Café we will share information about these activities and learn from each other as a group, so that we can cross-fertilise ideas about how to link into them.
