The Managing Global Governance (MGG) Academy brings together young professionals from government institutions, think tanks and research institutions, civil society and the private sector in rising powers and Europe. The main objective of the course is to support and prepare future change-makers for a professional and personal life dedicated to sustainable development at home and in the world. Building trust, exchanging perspectives and developing a mutual understanding belong to the core assets of the Academy.
The MGG Academy is based on the premise that profound knowledge, leadership qualities as well as visionary action are of core importance for transformative change. The four-month course thus blends academic modules, modules on leadership development and applied project work.
As a completely digital format, the MGG Academy 2020 prepared participants for the future of virtual cooperation in diverse and transnational contexts, combining various forms of synchronous and asynchronous work. Learning, dialogue and project development were supported by interactive working methods, participatory approaches, peer coaching and personal reflection. At the core of the MGG Academy, participants focused on the opportunities and challenges of global cooperation and transformation to sustainability in times of disruptive crisis.
