Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe 2020 – Stage 2


For the 5th edition of the Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe, 20 philanthropy professionals from China and Europe will gather in person from 20 to 23 April 2021 in Brussels for Stage 2 of the programme to share their knowledge, experience, creativity and concerns during this intensive, peer-learning leadership development programme.

The aim of PLP is for participants to enhance their leadership skills by learning from each other, and then return to their home organisations and contexts with new perspectives, tools and insights that will make them better leaders. The programme typically revolves around the themes of social innovation, leadership development and bilateral cooperation between China and Europe.

The exchange will bring back the highest-rated modules from previous editions, and the curriculum will be enriched with brand-new content to be featured for the first time. The current edition will specifically focus on the following core leadership skills and techniques for addressing and navigating the unique challenges and opportunities facing philanthropy: change management, crisis management, impact management, agility, glocal thinking, shared leadership, driving social innovation, and leading partnerships.

The onsite exchange will last 3 days and take collaboration to the next level after several months of remote working. Participants will engage in group and plenary interaction, practical workshops and masterclasses, active exchange with high-level experts and leaders of philanthropic organisations, site visits to local non-profit organisations and networking events with PLP alumni.

To boost the sharing experience, each participant will be paired up throughout the programme with one of their intercontinental peers.

Stage 2 of the platform will follow Stage 1 that will take place online from 1 September to 27 October 2020.

The platform is organised in partnership with the China Global Philanthropy Institute (CGPI) and funded by Stiftung Mercator.
