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 training and dialogue format 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.
Learning, dialogue and project development are supported by interactive working methods, participatory approaches, peer coaching and personal reflection. At the core of the MGG Academy, participants focuse on the opportunities and challenges of global cooperation and transformation to sustainability in times of disruptive crisis.
Due to the corona pandemic the MGG Academy 2020 and 2021 took place in a digital format which prepared participants for the future of virtual cooperation in diverse and transnational contexts, combining various forms of synchronous and asynchronous work. This year, we have returned back to an in presence academy at IDOS in Bonn. The MGG Academy 2022 started on 11 August and ends on 7 December.
