    9th Global Diplomacy Lab

    Strategies for Overcoming Urban Violence: Exploring Global Perspectives & Engaging for Local Prevention

    The 9th Global Diplomacy Lab aims to create a toolkit that will help reduce inequalities and youth violence in cities. The Impact Lab in Chicago builds on the Incubator Lab in Berlin, where the GDL members got to know each other, exchanged experiences, and tested out methods such as mediation, adaptive leadership, and forum theater.

    The GDL wants to involve all relevant stakeholders in its working process. These include big public and private institutions such as the Chicago Mayor’s Office and the Obama Foundation, as well as key partners of the GDL and several small and medium-sized local initiatives that deal with youth violence on the streets of Chicago.

    During the upcoming lab, the working groups will test their projects locally. The Impact Lab will conclude with a presentation of the results of this year’s work and gather the necessary feedback to ensure sustainable impact beyond the Impact Lab.

    BMW Foundation Global Table

    Female Leadership for Resilient Societies

    Because of their limited mobility and socially assigned roles, women are more vulnerable than men in disasters. At the same time, women’s intimate, frontline knowledge of their local environment gives them the capacity to be leaders and transformational agents.

    The United Nations 2030 Agenda recognizes that without gender equality and the empowerment of women sustainable development will be unattainable. One central element of sustainable development is resilience, understood as the ability to recognize and address transformative forces such us climate change, globalization, urbanization, technological progress, and demographic patterns.

    So far, women’s leadership in building resilient and inclusive communities across the world has not yet been adequately highlighted. Therefore, the 13th BMW Foundation Global Table in Udaipur, India, wants to develop solutions on how to counter social inequalities and empower female leadership. Participants from around the globe will share their experiences, discuss success stories and challenges, and develop forward-looking strategies.
