    Zukunftsbrücke: Chinese-German Young Professional Campus

    Achieving the 2030 Agenda – Rethinking Global Partnerships for Sustainable Development

    The United Nations 2030 agenda is based on two basic beliefs: One, that global challenges can only be solved together; and two, that climate policy, poverty reduction and sustainable development are inextricably linked. With this year’s Zukunftsbrücke, we will examine how the SDGs in Germany and China are understood, and which new paths and partnerships will allow us to advance towards their fulfilment. Under discussion will be the roles of nation-states and new cross-sector partnerships from politics, academia and civil society, and ultimately the responsibility of individuals and leaders to work towards a fair, sustainable society.

    Berlin Global Forum

    Breaking the Patterns – Responsible Leadership for Inclusive Societies

    Deeply divided societies have become a reality in many parts of the world, with authoritarian governments coming to power all over the place. Many citizens feel insecure – nationalism, particularism, and a roll-back of liberal and multilateral values are on the rise and rapidly transforming societies everywhere.

    Responsible Leaders in all realms of society are urgently needed to overcome centrifugal tendencies. Often, our individual patterns of thought and behavior do not allow us to see possible solutions. With our Berlin Global Forum we invite participants to think about their own role in society, their own “blind spots,” and their own levers of change.

    A new understanding of our unconscious biases might unleash new dynamics for social cohesion, ultimately providing the precondition for open, inclusive and peaceful societies in line with the 2030 Agenda.

    World Responsible Leaders Forum

    6th World Responsible Leaders Forum

    Through the World Responsible Leaders Forum, we endeavor to offer a space in which the members of our Responsible Leaders Network can forge and strengthen connections, using their skills, knowledge, and empathy to reflect upon Responsible Leadership and how they can contribute to the UN 2030 Agenda. The Forum provides an opportunity to connect and reconnect with each other and to experience the power of the Responsible Leaders Network.

    As venue for this year’s Forum, we have chosen Mérida in the Yucatan Peninsula, the center of the Americas. The region, formerly inhabited by the Maya civilization, offers a rich and complex history but, more importantly, is home to a thriving, diverse society facing today’s challenges and forging creative solutions. We are confident that this environment will inspire a powerful exchange among our Responsible Leaders from all over the world.
