Workshop on reciprocal cycle with South Africa

Posted on October 19, 2015

GLEN organises a workshop between 24-27 November 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa to take one step forward in implementing its vision to become a Global Partner Network. Based on the new Strategy 2016-2020 we hope to be able to pilot a reciprocal training cycle with South African participants (training in SA, internship in Europe) in 2017/2018.

Participants from eleven local (Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg) and six European GLEN member countries will take part in the workshop in the Community Development Resource Association with the aim to:

1. get to know each other with potential partner organizations

2. discuss the various understandings of “transformative”, “popular” and “global” education, their similarities and differences in practice and methodology in South Africa and in GLEN European countries

3. gain an understanding of ways the concept of ‘leadership’ is understood across different contexts

4. discuss opportunities and obstacles of future cooperation

We look forward to reporting to the GLEN community about this event, there will definitely be a presentation of the results on the Rocket Event in Slovenia in November.

If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact GLEN network officer Andras Martoni (
