The ‘Managing Global Governance Academy’ (MGG Academy) is accepting applications for the 2022 training course geared towards highly-qualified young professionals who work in a partner institution of the MGG network or in an institution that is interested in future cooperation.

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.
