Global Perspectives Initiative


The Global Perspectives Initiative was founded in Berlin by Dr.Ingrid Hamm and Stephan Balzer. Today, the initiative's team dedicate their work to increase Germany's international responsibility in global development cooperation. An advisory board supports the initiative since 2018.


he Global Perspectives Initiative believes that a higher sense of responsibility leads to more opportunities, and more opportunities lead to a better future for everyone.

That is why we are promoting and supporting the discourse on a sustainable and balanced global development and strongly encourage Germany to increase its international responsibility in global development cooperation. We bring together stakeholders from politics, business, media and civil society and inform, discuss and work together to develop new approaches.

By doing so, we support Germany in fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015. The Global Perspectives Initiative sees itself as a national platform in a global discourse for a fairer world in the future.
