EFC Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe 2019

Applications are now closed.

For the 4th edition of the Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe, 20 mid-to-senior-level philanthropic leaders from China and Europe will gather from 15th-22nd September 2019 in Beijing to share their knowledge, experience, creativity and concerns during this intensive, peer-learning leadership development programme.

Following the success of the 20162017 and 2018 editions of the Philanthropic Leadership Platform – China-Europe (墨卡托中欧公益领导力伙伴项目), the EFC and the China Global Philanthropy Institute (CGPI), with continued financial support from Stiftung Mercator, have agreed to extend the programme for a further three years. The programme alternates each year between the two continents and with a new group of participants each year.

The programme will last a total of 8 days: 2 days for travel and 6 days for the programme activities. Participants engage in group and plenary interaction, and active exchange with high-level experts and leaders of institutions in the public, private and voluntary sectors. The programme is built on the following specific activities:

  • Group work on specific topics
  • Plenary discussions
  • Lectures and trainings
  • Intergroup workshops
  • Excursions to other foundations and non-profit organisations
  • Site visits to local philanthropy projects

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

All costs, except for travel, are covered by the organisers.
