Launch of “Sylff Leaders Workshop” in Japan: An Opportunity to Interact with Fellows from across the Globe

The Sylff Association is happy to announce the latest addition to the growing list of support programs: “Sylff Leaders Workshop.”

The Workshop will provide an opportunity for selected Sylff fellows to deepen their understanding of differences in peoples’ values, perspectives, and opinions so they may make informed decisions on important social issues and enhance the effectiveness of well-intended actions. The participatory, capacity-building workshop aims to nurture leadership in a multicultural setting.

The workshop will consist of two 8-day programs to be held in fall 2018 and spring 2019 in Japan—primarily outside Tokyo. It will bring together Sylff fellows who have (1) substantial expertise in policy studies or policymaking and/or (2) experience addressing social issues in civil society or the private sector to discuss the “Potential of Trans-border Networking in 2030” through the application of scenario planning methodologies.

Past recipients of Sylff fellowships are invited to apply. Click here to read the call for applications.
