Transatlantic Leadership Seminar
Transformative change on both sides of the Atlantic is generating calls to "future proof" education so as to provide today's youth with the skills to succeed tomorrow. Technological advances are also radically transforming the way we perceive reality and engage with fellow citizens, renewing calls for new forms of civic education.
This year's Transatlantic Leadership Seminar on Education and Workforce Development will deploy a cohort of 20 leaders to Berlin, Amsterdam, and Tallinn from November 10-17, 2019. Participants will explore growing trends surrounding education, reform, and accessibility, leaving the program with new strategies and practices to strengthen competitiveness and democracy in their communities.
GMF’s Transatlantic Leadership Seminar enables leaders from business, government, and civil society to stay at the forefront of trends in the 21st century. Each rendition lasts seven to nine days, is expert-led, and takes place in a region experiencing rapid change. Participants engage with more than 40 leaders in open, frank, and dynamic conversations, and benefit from firsthand experience and group reflection.
Transatlantic Leadership Seminars are exclusive to GMF alumni, which includes alumni of the following programs: the Marshall Memorial Fellowship, Manfred Wörner Seminar, Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network, Transatlantic Forum for Migration and Integration, Asmus Policy Entrepreneurs Fellowship, APSA Congressional Fellowship, and New Länder Fellowship.
