In the 3rd edition of the Philanthropic Leadership Platform – China-Europe 20 participants from China and Europe have been selected to take part in the unique initiative that aims to improve the leadership capability of emerging philanthropic leaders, while simultaneously connecting philanthropists in both Europe and China. Following an extremely competitive selection process this group of 20 were selected to participate in this years programme and provide but a small representation of the diversity, strength and spirit of the philanthropic sector across Europe and China.

We look forward to welcoming them all to Philanthropy House here in Brussels from the 10th to 16th of September as they dive into this intensive, seven-day leadership development programme and enhance their leadership skills by sharing with each other their knowledge, experience, creativity and concerns. To boost this sharing experience, each participant will be paired up throughout the programme with one of their intercontinental peers.

Topics on the agenda will include:

  • Leadership – What it is, what is required and leadership styles
  • Tools leaders use to intervene and transform
  • Social innovation in policy and practice
  • How to evaluate impact
  • How to use the power of collaboration and levers of influence to develop capability to engage in social innovation
  • Using peer learning as a resource

This programme, which was born from the firm belief that learning from each other is key to tackling such questions, is funded by Stiftung Mercator and led by EFC in partnership with the China Global Philanthropy Institute.
