    Denkraum: Good Life and Sustainable Cities 2030

    Civic participation, climate change, health, and mobility: many global problems are concentrated and intensified in urban areas. But this also makes cities a breeding ground for solutions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda. Through our Denkraum event entitled “Good Life and Sustainable Cities 2030,” we, as a foundation, want to contribute our share.

    The city as a place for solutions: During the Denkraum event, we want to dive deeply into the multifaceted dimensions of this topic. The focus on the Sustainable Development Goal #11 – “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” – provides a positive scenario for participants. We invite our guests to think outside the box. What does Responsible Leadership look like with a view to the common good and life in sustainable cities?

    Responsible Leaders Forum

    Responsible Leaders Forum South Africa

    At this gathering, we intend to listen to diverse voices on the challenges and innovations arising in Africa and beyond. A continent of vastly diverse cultures and countries, Africa is currently undergoing deep transformations as a result of widespread progress in health, education, entrepreneurship, and civil society. In Africa, as around the world, this progress depends on leaders that are willing to assume responsibility for society.

    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.
