Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe 2020 – Stage 1

For the 5th edition of the Philanthropic Leadership Platform: China-Europe, 20 philanthropy professionals from China and Europe will gather first online from 1 September to 27 October 2020 for Stage 1 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 online exchange constituting Stage 1 will include 4 live sessions to be run every 2 weeks over a period of 2 months, requiring two hours of commitment, as well as recommended reading, pair and team work, and forum discussion to support participants’ learning journeys.

Stage 2 of the platform will take place in person from 20 to 23 April 2021 in Brussels and take collaboration to the next level after several months of remote working.

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