GLAC Network member João Vitor Domingues shared the call for application for the Leadership Course at ENAP the Brazilian National School of Public Administration (25th-29th July 2022). Several international GLAC Network members pariticipated in the program, which might have been a pilot for future events.

Agile leadership: You may have heard of it, but you may not know the principles, benefits, and application areas that lie behind this concept. The agile leadership course offered by ENAP was exclusive to senior executives in the public sector, held in English with translation into Portuguese.

 

Co-Creating Change: The GSDR Community of Practice at Work

Since 2021 a group of highly motivated professionals from the Latin American and Caribbean Region are forming the GSDR Community of Practice (CoP) , striving to maximize co-benefits and minimize trade-offs to drive faster implementation of the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR). Breaking down silos between sectors and stakeholder groups they started to generate solutions for policy coherence that enable a smoother implementation and foster a culture of working collaboration. 

Co-hosted by UNDESA and GIZ the group has grown to 39 members from 16 countries that currently work on 14 different project ideas for translating the global to the local in the region and thereby contributing to the implementation of the SDGs.

Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues on Global Solutions Summit 2022

In the scope of a green technologies dissemination initiative implemented by GIZ in cooperation with the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI), the global circular economy agenda is being advanced through a series of Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD). They aim to inspire a conducive circular economy (CE) narrative feeding into the G/T20 process, building on the momentum of commitments on the circular economy and focusing on both analyzing mechanisms scaling-up circularity and devising context-sensitive strategies for their broad implementation.

Many GLAC Network members especially from the Solutions Lab Community are participating.

The CESD hosted two multi-stakeholder panels at the hybrid Global Solutions Summit 2022:

  • "Circular economy and global value chains" on March 28th.
  • "The growing imperative for a circular economy" on March 29th.
