Global Diplomacy Lab

The Global Diplomacy Lab is a platform for exploring a new and more inclusive diplomacy which goes beyond traditional politics. Therefore, creative professionals from various fields are needed to explore new tools of communication on the basis of mutual trust and to re-formulate an agenda for collective action.

The Federal Foreign Office, under the patronage of Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and in partnership with the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, the Global Leadership Academy, the Stiftung Mercator and the Robert Bosch Stiftung investigate what diplomacy will look like in the furture together with outstanding members of their networks from all continents.
