Two weeks ago ESE has participated on the third annual TALEARN workshop in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
During the workshop, a steady stream of individuals got off airplanes arriving from near and far for the start of the third TALEARN workshop. By the end of the week they had survived three intense days of engagement around learning in the transparency and accountability sector. Everyone, had taken away something of value: new ideas, connections, resources, inspiration or something else entirely.
The workshop was a space to dig deeper into familiar issues, but also to expand our thinking in new directions. It was also designed to meet the practical needs of individuals and organizations, giving them space to draw on the breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in the room to address specific challenges they were facing. The TALEARN tried to maintain an environment where participants could pursue their own ideas and priorities, we sought to keep this autonomy and creativity grounded with a broader framing around the challenges and opportunities faced in this sector, and how our efforts can help strengthen accountability ecosystems.
The participants reflect on the key issues raised and insights shared, and get those out to a wider audience.
