The course combines various learning formats, features leading experts and local practitioners, and immerses in real-world case studies.

The innovative course structure is comprised of three components in order to ensure a comprehensive learning experience:

- An e-learning tool with five self-paced course units,
- Five live facilitated peer-exchange sessions accompanying each unit,
- Five live sessions with input from leading experts and a Q&A following each peer-exchange session.
These elements build on one another so you can deepen the knowledge you gained in the self-paced learning units by exchanging with your peers and engaging in lively discussions with experts.

In two sessions we will discuss the nexus of National Dialogues and current topics such as climate change, protest movements, and digitalisation. You will also have the opportunity to present your own work on National Dialogues, whether to reflect on past experiences or brainstorm on the challenges of an ongoing process
