This learning toolkit is aimed at strengthening local capacities and territorial action on human mobility, localizing the global migration, refugees and sustainable development agendas, in unison.
As part of the GFMD Mayors Mechanism (MM) Call to Local Action, we are proud to launch a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): ‘Localizing the Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees: Territorial Action on Human Mobility’, developed by UCLG in partnership with the Mayors Mechanism, UNHCR, MC2CM, ICMPD and UN-Habitat.
Through this free online course, municipal workers, practitioners and any other interested actors will learn about the role of local and regional governments (LRGs) in shaping human mobility governance and how their action contributes to global goals, including the Migration and Refugee Compacts as well as the 2030 Agenda.
Podcasts, animated videos, games, and infographics will guide one through the 3 chapters of the course, which also offers you the possibility to interact, share and connect with other learners of the community:
- Chapter 1 provides a general introduction to the topic of local migration governance and refugee protection.
- Chapter 2 showcases concrete actions local and regional governments can and are implementing to address human mobility.
- Chapter 3 connects these actions to global agendas, and introduces the Call to Local Action for Migrants and Refugees, and how your own city or region can contribute to it.
Join the community of learners and especially spread the word amongst your network of local authorities and other interested stakeholders!
