On 18 until 20 September 2019, the Managing Global Governance (MGG) network organised together with the National School of Public Administration ENAP (Escola Nacional de Administração Pública) the conference „The Power of Cooperation: Shaping a positive narrative of global governance“ in Brasília.
Alumni from all years of the MGG Academy, – the training and dialogue format of the MGG network – partners from the MGG network, and guests from politics, academia, civil society and the private sector discussed how to hold open spaces for dialogue in times of increasing polarisation and nationalist tendencies. Participants dealt with various fields of global governance, including biodiversity, digitalisation and the future of work. Another focus was the implementation of instruments of successful cooperation in institutions and professional life.
The conference was part of a series of events in all MGG partner countries (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa) to examine positive narratives of global governance. The conference in Brazil built on the discussions in India (28 – 29 April 2019) and Mexico (25 – 26 July 2019). Its results will feed into the follow-up event in South Africa (4 – 5 November 2019).
