01: Success! The Do’s and Don’ts of Changemaking in Europe

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The European Forum Alpbach is populated with successful leaders who have managed to turn their vision of change into a daily reality. How did they get to where they are today? What is their advice on what works and what doesn’t? What are the insights they share, the lessons we learn, the tools I need? What do seasoned professionals see as key ingredients in effective campaigning, advocacy, influence, or full-scale change-making in European affairs? Which approaches will succeed tomorrow, how can we harness Europe’s talents, ideas and experiences for the mega challenges of our time? We will explore these issues in an interactive session. This session will continue in the afternoon.
