The PG Community of Practice is a global network of people with a shared interest in participatory governance. It includes people from different countries, working at different levels and in a variety of sectors. If you work in the area of participatory governance, or if you’re simply interested in learning more about it, feel free to join now. It’s fast, easy and free-of-charge. The PG Community or Practice is open to all and seeks to create a secure environment for collective reflection, dialogue, sharing and collaboration. Through various thematic and geographical groups, the global Community of Practice forms overlapping circles of specialised sub-communities, providing opportunities for sharing, learning, mutual support and collaboration at each level. The knowledge generated through the interaction of members of the Community of Practice is distilled and shared so as to allow other practitioners to re-use and adapt this knowledge to their local realities.
