Trainee cities


Based on the peer-to-peer approach the 8 tutoring cities will learn from their tutoring cities and from all other project partners.

‘Peer-to-peer’ learning involves groups of different cities working on similar issues evaluating each others’ local energy policies, programmes and practices and giving recommendations on possible areas of improvement. Those making the evaluation are called peers because they come from backgrounds similar to colleagues whose work is reviewed. A key strength of the process is that – as peers – they can readily understand the goals of the practitioners whom they visit, the pressures on them, and the complexity of their environment. Partners will produce a joint report and guidelines on peer-to-peer working as an output of this joint initiative.
