NEW YORK, New York, 7 September 2012 – We would like to invite you to participate in the second Compendium of Transitional Learning Spaces (TLS) in emergency situations for the year 2012. Last year’s publication was a great collaborative success and is accessible here and is also available on the UNICEF website
Please reach out to your contacts and networks and pass on this call for entries and attachments with the following information:
We would like to invite colleagues and partners to submit case studies of:
- temporary/ transitional learning spaces
- early learning spaces, ECD
- child-friendly spaces,
that could be included into this year’s open source compendium.
Like last year, the compendium will collect and document the implemented case studies from the field with their specific emergency context. It will give technical and material information and highlight suggestion of possible improvements and lessons learned. The aim is to offer practical insights and guidance on implementing TLSs in emergency situations to field colleagues and partners.
We hope that with the contribution of your projects and experience the compendium will become a rich reference source which all of us can use to improve future responses.
For the compendium we are seeking transitional learning spaces, early learning spaces and child-friendly spaces projects which:
- have already been implemented
- implemented by a humanitarian organisation or community based organizations
- have the potential for replication
- have some available documentation, (such as photos, technical drawings, person to interview / reports etc.)
If you would like to discuss potential case studies, please feel free to email us or fill out the questionnaire below and send us available project documentation you may have by 28 September 2012.
Please forward this information and questionnaire to your colleague in education, emergency, other organisations and contacts who may be interested to contribute.
Thank you very much for your time and effort and please contact us if you have any questions.
