The Rebuild Project started in April 2021 and will finish at the end of March 2025. According to the Project timeline, the training activities started in October 2021 and will be completed at the beginning of 2025.

REBUILD training curriculum aims at strengthening the capacity of the 10 Libyan municipalities partners in the project to work in the direction of making cities and communities more sustainable (SDG 11) as it will promote: participatory, accountable and inclusive governance; urban planning as a key element to attain more sustainable models of development, promoting sustainable and inclusive local development, promoting social economic development, improving performances in service delivery.

The training curriculum is based on the Territorial Approach to Local Development (TALD) and adopts a pedagogy based on the model of the Participatory Experiential Learning.

Training structure

The project foresees 6 training cycles (each one lasting six months). An introductory module (Module 0) was added to explain how it works, and to introduce the idea of Territorial Approach to Local Development with a reference to the case study of the Autonomous Province of Trento in terms of local development.

The scheme of each cycle is composed by two phases:

  1. TRAINING OF TRAINERS: specific for the Universities, is articulated in two parts based on a blended methodology, one e-learning session and one in-presence.

2. TRAINING TO MUNICIPALITIES: specific for the Municipalities’ staff. In-presence training is delivered by university trainers who were involved in the first phase of the cycle.

The REBUILD E-learning Platform is a Moodle-based dedicated platform. Its address is:

The platform is the place where all the e-learning training activities of the project are developed. Each training module, depending on the type of contents and its training objectives, may combine a range of different activities, for instance: video-lessons, reading texts, questionnaires, etc.

E-learning is a versatile education tool that offers interesting opportunities (and a number of risks). If well implemented, e-learning can help to expand and enhance the ability of an organization to deliver innovative quality training.


The participants to the TRAINING OF TRAINERS, both the e-learning and in-presence  sections, will be university staff.

The participants of the TRAINING TO MUNICIPALITIES are Municipality staff selected according to the contents of the training and the specific needs of the local authorities.
