MOOC - Territorial Governance
2016 - Dissemination of the MOOC Territorial Governance by the International Centre for the Study of Local Development (CIEDEL); Escuela para el desarrollo - 2015 - 2016 - Achievement of the MOOC Territorial Governance: CNFPT-INSET
Territorial governance is at the crossroads of two changes, both of which are decisive for reconciling citizens with politics, for responding to the demands of an increasingly complex world, and for leading the transition towards sustainable societies.
The first of these changes is that of governance. The second is that of territories.
Training in territorial governance cannot, therefore, be limited to promoting management techniques inspired by the private sector. It must be based on an understanding of the two changes and their consequences at the level of local and regional authorities, and lead to operational approaches and guides for action.
This MOOC, which was broadcast three times on the FUN platform, brought together more than 11,000 learners from 60 countries.
