Global Perspectives Initiative
The 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 the Global Perspectives Initiative aims to promote and support the discourse on sustainable and balanced global development, and seeks to encourage Germany to increase its international responsibility in global development cooperation.
By doing so, the Initiative supports 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.
