The Blue Line – A Global Learning Hub designed by the UN, for the UN.

The Blue Line is a learning ecosystem created  by the UN System Staff College with a precise ambition: to be a unique and global learning hub open to all UN personnel for personalized and self-directed learning.

The Blue Line platform enables you to:

  1. Select from a growing number of curated online modules and learning paths and earn specialized badges and certificates.
  2. Access a set of free online courses and tools on key topics developed in collaboration with other UN agencies.
  3. Create a personal learning plan tailored to your own needs, interests and ambitions, and track your progress each step of the way.
  4. Achieve your learning and development goals at your own pace while engaging with a community of fellow UN colleagues from across the system.

The content and activities on the Blue Line are specifically tailored to the work of UN colleagues. New learning offerings are added to the platform regularly based on emerging trends and initiatives within the UN system.
