Make Your Experiences Count. They Can Change the World.
LET’S BRING ALL OF OUR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCES TOGETHER.
TOGETHER WE KNOW MORE. TOGETHER WE ACHIEVE MORE. TOGETHER WE DO BETTER.

we are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated KNOWLYMPICS 2023, our yearly knowledge sharing games!
The KNOWLYMPICS serve as a vital tool within our Knowledge Management Programme, fostering the capitalisation of experiences and the exchange within our network. We believe that by sharing both successes and challenges, we can collectively deepen our understanding, inspire others, and pave the way for meaningful change.
If you have a positive experience (learning from good practice) or negative experiences (learning from failure/challenge) related to advancing women’s rights –this year’s KNOWLYMPICS is for you!
As you may well know, the task of advancing women’s rights and gender equality is at the centre of our new framework 2023-2026. We thus invite you to submit your experiences on this topic, which of course encompasses a broad spectrum of issues. These may include, for example:
As always, participating in the KNOWLYMPICS not only gives you the chance to win a PRIZE for your organisation but:
“…those who share always win something – because sharing benefits us all” – Caritas Kaolack, Senegal
Everybody can get something out of these knowledge sharing games, as all submitted experiences will be published on the KNOW-HOW3000 platform and shared within our knowledge network.
As usual, we will be drawing winner organisations among all submissions that will receive prizes between 500 and 1000 Euros. Prizes can be used for Knowledge Management purposes according to the needs of the winning organisations. This can be an exchange visit to another organisation, training for your staff, equipment for the office or any other material prize that can be used in the organisation’s daily or project-based work.
In order to participate, fill out one of the following “learning from experience” questionnaires…
…and send it to Diego Freudenthaler.
This year we have brand new questionnaires for the capitalisation of your experiences. Incorporating your feedback and improvement suggestions, they were shortened and adapted to be more useful.
Based on your questionnaires, we produce accessible one-page presentations (“Good Practices” and “Learnings from Failure” at a Glance) as well as detailed descriptions (“Good Practices” and “Learnings from Failure” in Detail).
Note: If you already have an experience capitalisation document, e.g. produced in the context of a systematisation, you do not need to fill out a questionnaire but can submit your existing document instead.
We are sure you have many stories and experiences with advancing women’s rights worth sharing that others can learn from. This is why we are very much looking forward to receiving your submissions!
