Applications for Global Future Fellows (GFF) 2023 are now open to produce a Collaborative Action Plan, identifying collaboration areas to achieve food security amid global tensions.
The Global Future Fellows (GFF) is a short-term fellowship program by Pijar Foundation, in line with their spirit to promote ‘collaborative governance’ between public, private, and community sectors.
The second edition of GFF will focus on the theme “Achieving Food Security Amid Global Tensions” with 36 Fellows from the public, private, and community sectors.
Pijar Foundation successfully organized the inaugural Global Future Fellows (GFF) in September – October 2022, in Bali and Jakarta.
Why should you join GFF?
- GF Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in a series of knowledge exchange and upgrading activities, to build multi-sectoral global networks, identify synergy areas, and consolidate learnings into a practical ‘action roadmap’, which will be coordinated with key decision-makers. The ‘action roadmap’ is a concrete form of contribution that GF Fellows make to help guide key players in a common direction.
- GF Fellows will receive a Certificate at the program’s culmination.
- They also expect GFF’s impact to extend beyond the program’s end-date. The Action Roadmap and the created global network will be a launchpad for scaled, sustained, and impactful collaborations.
GFF is distinguished by five key areas of opportunity:
- Access to global and national network of strategic players
- Platform for professional development
- Concrete contribution to problem-solving
- Fully-funded residencies in Yogyakarta
