"Leadership for Global Responsibility": Co-Creating a Value-Based Approach for a Sustainable Future

Tuesda, 18 June 2013, 2:00 p.m., Room Suessmuth

Hosted by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit

In the 21st century, the world faces a series of global and systemic crises threatening the stability of ecological, social and economic systems. We are pressed to realize that continuing business as usual will likely move us beyond thresholds and tipping points that can trigger the collapse of these vital systems.

In response to these complex global challenges there is need for value-based global leadership that is committed to the well-being of societies and the planet and that is capable of transforming collective intention into collaborative action. This requires global leaders with a highly self-reflective attitude and the strong motivation to take rapid, ambitious and innovative action.

"Leadership for Global Responsibility" is a new leadership approach co-created by GIZ, the German agency for international cooperation, together with partners around the world to address these challenges. For example, a workshop will take place in India prior to the Global Media Forum to discuss the approach. The results of the workshop as well as preliminary findings for the overall process will be shared in a “pre-launch” of the approach at this panel discussion during the Global Media Forum. Audience members will be invited to contribute their ideas and openly explore new paths for the future. Their input will be taken into account during finalization of the approach in July 2013.

Panelists will include international stakeholders from GIZ partners. The key question to be addressed is: What role and which competencies do leaders (in international cooperation) need today and in the future to accompany and co-design transformation in light of “Leadership for Global Responsibility”? Participants will be invited to sign up to the GIZ LeadershipLAB to be a part of the implementation process of the approach in the future.
