"Think globally, act locally" mantra applies to politics too! Young and future political leaders should have a better understanding and appreciation of the interconnectedness between local and global affairs. In this volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, we need leaders who are effective in governing their constituencies and, at the same time, manage the effects of international shocks.
To equip these future political leaders, this second training will cover topics such as the regional state of local governance and development, localising the sustainable development goals (SDGs), strategising local economies for green jobs, challenges of decentralisation, and addressing disaster governance. Lastly, the programme will also facilitate cross-learning through dialogue with local political leaders and exchange ideas on how to effectively govern their communities.
