The objectives of peer-learning is the transfer of knowledge, skills and experience from one municipality to others. This can entail technical assistance to solve specific municipal challenges, benchmarking to inspire change, or other forms of peer support.

During a peer-learning event, participants listen actively and share their stories, knowledge, and experiences. Participants are students and advisers at the same time which makes a peer-learning event different to “classical” forms of learning where the student has a more passive role.
