Forum for Foresight and Future Analysis in the Areas of International Politics and Global Issues
For ‘young professionals’ interested in conducting foresight projects, here’s an interesting call for application for the Global Governance Futures program (GGF) 2025. Deadline: February 16, 2014.
The call reads as follows:
The Global Governance Futures program (GGF) is bringing together young professionals to look ahead to the year 2025 and recommend ways to address key global challenges. Building on two previous rounds of the program (GGF 2020 and GGF 2022), the upcoming GGF 2025 will assemble 25 individuals from Germany, China, Japan, India and the United States to form three working groups that focus on internet governance, geoengineering governance or global arms control in the year 2025.
Over the course of 2014 and 2015 the fellows will meet in four sessions that take place in the five participating countries. In three working groups, they will produce scenarios towards 2025 and develop concrete policy suggestions for effective and accountable governance.
The four dialogue sessions (each five to eight days) will take place in Berlin (8-12 June 2014), Tokyo and Beijing (9-15 October 2014), New Delhi (January 2015) and Washington, DC (May 2015).
The GGF fellows will disseminate the results of their working group through reports, op-eds in major publications, policy papers, journal articles and high profile presentations.
The application deadline is 16 February 2014.
