The EFA Leadership Lab: As part of the European Forum Alpbach, Alpbach in Motion (AIM) is a Lab for up to 40 outstanding professionals between the ages 30 to 40, who are willing to shape and transform Europe.
Each year, committed young business leaders, changemakers, policymakers, scientists, artists, and activists commit to a one-of-a-kind leadership experience. By stimulating peer-to-peer learning and out-of-the-box solutions, Alpbach in Motion creates a space for the emergence of reflection and action. At EFA24 - in line with the European Forum Alpbach mission to shape a stronger Europe for the good of all - Alpbach in Motion takes place from 24 to 27 August 2024. Young professionals are encouraged to facilitate change in their industries, ecosystems and the broader social context.
At EFA, we are committed to building a diverse, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary community to drive ideas for a strong and democratic Europe. When scouting for our programmes, we look to achieve diversity in the candidate pool and actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups. If you identify as belonging to one of these groups, you may indicate this in your motivational statement. We will take it into consideration in our jury assessment.
Alpbach in Motion is a Lab led by an experienced leadership mentor who guides through varied and unexpected hours. The name reflects the programme, meaning that the group is in motion most of the time, on slow-paced hikes or at sessions that activate the mind and body. One AIM alumnus describes it as “The settings were shifting between joint discussions, smaller group works, and solitary contemplation. Hiking was used as a very suitable format for transmuting internal reflection to external dialogue and vice versa. All these process steps gave us the opportunity not only to connect the dots, but also to get to know ourselves and each other better – and how to use this for shaping our personal impact.” Read more in the blog post here.
If you are ready to go on an individual and collective leadership journey where your personal learning emerges through the experience and competence of the group, then we look forward to your application!
