Abstract: On the 10th and 11th of October, 2005, a group of thirteen different umbrella bodies of international development NGO’s from all over the world has come together to share experiences relating to how we support learning and capacity building within our NGO members. The event has been organised by BOND, the UK’s broadest network of international development NGOs, and PSO, a Dutch NGO umbrella organisation that focuses on capacity building. This event resulted directly from a get together between PSO, BOND and the Swedish network organisation. “We met by chance, but it was very useful,” Gabrielle (BOND) said. “We found out that we were working in a similar area but in different ways, and we wanted to keep the conversation going. And then we thought: why keep it to those three groups that were so randomly thrown together?” This two-day event was organised around the theme: How do we support learning and capacity building amongst our membership? The open-space method will be used, to discuss the theme: ‘How do we support learning and capacity building amongst our membership?’. “We made no assumptions,” Vicky, facilitator for BOND, said. “We chose for a program that will allow the questions, differences and experiences to emerge.”
