Active Cities Training

STARTING ACTIVE CITIES POLICIES OR STRATEGIES IS NOT ALWAYS EASY. MUNICIPALITIES DO NOT ALWAYS KNOW WHAT BEING AN ACTIVE CITY MEANS, WHERE TO START, WHAT ELEMENTS TO CONSIDER AND MOBILIZE, OR IN WHAT DIRECTION TO DEVELOP.

Active Cities Training

 

For this reason, TAFISA offers two types of training, delivered by facilitators that have experience in the field:

ACTIVE CITY ADVOCACY

The Active City Advocacy Training is made for municipalities that have not yet decided whether they should make a step forward, and wish to learn more about the Active City concept.

Target group: Relevant managers and/or decision makers within the municipality

Number of participants: Limited to the key persons in the municipality, who would lead and/or support the Active City project

Note: A 3rd type of training will be developed during 2017 for municipalities that are already advanced and are striving to reach Global Active City Accreditation.
Being more technical, this training will provide them with the tools to meet the requirements of the ISO-compatible standard that will be released in June 2017
as part of the Global Active City Labelling and Certification scheme.
