Overall objectives of the initiative is to increase the extent of cooperation between Norwegian and Hungarian local governments, its leaders, experts, staff, through continuation of existing partnership and capacity-building programs of the national associations of both countries, KS and TÖOSZ. The bilateral cooperation contributes to the collaboration between the partners through sharing experiences, knowledge, know-how and working together for joint results such as the development of strategies, new knowledge, practice. The aim of the initiative is to exchange know-how, learning about best practices, well operating models during a study tour. The project includes two main activities: a study trip to Norway with 7 participants and a final workshop in Budapest. 
The title of this project “Norwegian and Hungarian municipalities for better gender equality” reflects the bilateral and the professional aims of the project. 
The study trip will be held in March 2018 in Bergen. The final program will be fixed after the decisions on support of this project. The participants will have the opportunity to consult on the program content. The participants will be Mayors, elected representatives, officials from Hungarian local government. The project aims to raise the awareness in gender equality, work-life balance; work together, think together and have a project concept, or an action at the end of the workshop for each participating municipality.
We communicate on project results through the websites of the Partners and a press conference during the workshop in Budapest.
