Managing Global Governance Academy 2019 in Bonn, Germany (Scholarship available)

Deadline: February 15, 2019

Applications are invited for the Managing Global Governance (MGG) Academy 2019. The Academy is a dialogue and advanced training course that brings together young professionals from rising powers and from Europe. Its overarching purpose is to support the development of future change makers who are addressing global challenges and are dedicated to transformative change.

The Academy is based on the premise that future change makers need profound knowledge of content and the ability to analyse complex interdependencies as well as personal and social skills. The course thus blends knowledge components on global governance challenges with the development of the participants’ leadership competencies. In an action-oriented component, participants apply the knowledge and competencies they have acquired and develop a collective change project.

After completing the MGG Academy, the alumni are invited to become actively engaged in the MGG network. They may get involved in ongoing research and policy projects to promote the implementation of the 2030 Agenda or develop their own projects to promote transformative change. The Academy will hold from August 15 – December 11, 2019 in Bonn, Germany.

The scholarship covers the current costs of living, all MGG related costs and travel expenses in Germany and Europe as well as health, personal liability and accident insurances during the training in Germany.
