Activities of 2011
- Second Local Networks Exchange Programme (Dominican Republic September 12 – 16, 2011)
- The Local Network Exchange Programme initiated by the Global Compact Office, New York is aimed at bringing together small groups of Local Network Contact Persons from various Local Networks across national boundaries around the world to a specified local network (host) for a period of time to gain relevant insights on the workings of other networks, foster inter-network and inter-regional collaborations and the cross-pollination of best practices. The Local Networks contact persons have been identified as those involved in running the day-to-day operations of the Local Networks.
- The second exchange program was hosted by the Local Network of the Dominican Republic and gathered contact persons from the local networks of Ghana, USA, Ecuador, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the Latin American Regional Center. Representatives from the Global Compact Office also attended the program as facilitators and communicators of updates to the Local Networks present for the exchange. The programme which covered a period of 5 days (September 12th - 16th, 2011) also included a Country CSR tour to several cities and visits to 7 companies and projects showcasing activities undertaken by GC participants in the Dominican Republic.
