The Learning Curve: A world where learning comes first

SaveTheDate - July 10th event

A new kind of online event, featuring humanitarians from all over the world for opinion, debate, networking, video and music.

Throughout 2024, ALNAP is challenging itself, its members and humanitarians everywhere to be bolder in learning, embrace different learning experiences and approaches, and be more receptive and responsive to learning. This new journey will help transform our thinking, step off learning paths, unpick power relations and work towards more inclusive learning environments.

This fast-paced, multi-format event in early July will feature video reflections and live debate on humanitarian learning, an open floor Q&A, music.

It will look at the following topics:
- Exploring why local/national actors with their wealth of knowledge and experience are largely overlooked by the broader system.
- Institutional ego and the competitive funding environment and how this inhibits the willingness of agencies to share learning collectively.
- Organisations developing cultures that enable them to make use of the learning that already exists.

An exciting event in the making, so save the date and block out the time now.
