Partner with us      

The National Urban Learning Platform (NULP) encourages collaborative solutions and ideas for the urban sector, cultivating an ecosystem which will promote and support co-creation at a national and global scale.

NULP calls for partners from the urban ecosystem to contribute to this endeavour. Government departments, academic institutions, industries, start-ups, and civil society organisations can provide thought leadership and domain expertise by catering to the emerging learning requirements of the NULP user base.

By creating and facilitating a flow of knowledge resources on to the platform, partners can become pioneers in this initiative on nurturing leadership capacities in the urban development sector.
