DAAD Spring School for African Germany-Alumni

The University of Bonn and the  German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) are partners in the  Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research. In a joint Spring School we invite African Germany-Alumni from any field of study and Alumni of the Managing Global Governance Academy (MGG) of the DIE to come to Bonn, Germany in March 2020.

Within the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, multi-stakeholder participation is an important approach to contribute to sustainable changes in economies, societies and the environment. Especially SDG 17 emphasizes the importance of strengthening global partnerships to support and achieve the ambitious targets of the Agenda 2030. The Alumni Spring School aims at fostering partnerships and networks by overcoming regional and disciplinary borders.  Knowledge transfer among participants from developing and emerging powers at the science-policy-interface is a main part of this concept. Participants will benefit from generating and sharing scientific knowledge products through dynamic peer learning groups. Solution-based analyses of challenges from multi-participants perspectives acknowledge the diversity of cultures within the global dialogue.The program is based on four core elements:

  1. Materials for preparation.
  2. Content-related input and discussion.
  3. Peer learning.
  4. Theoretical and practical elements of scientific communication.
