DIE: Wanted – Project topics for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda

Are you and your institution facing concrete challenges in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development? Would it be interesting for you to have an international team of experts exploring possible solutions?

If yes, then propose your challenge as a project topic for the MGG Academy!

A suitable project topic

  • asks how a concrete change can be achieved,
  • is relevant for you as the idea giver,
  • is related to real processes,
  • is related to the Agenda 2030 and the SDGs,
  • is limited and can be addressed within three weeks time.


The MGG Academy is a four months training and dialogue format for young professionals from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa and Europe, who work in their home countries in governmental institutions, think tanks, civil society or the private sector.

In the final weeks of the MGG Academy (this year in November 2017), the participants will work in project teams and develop solutions to addressing concrete challenges for the implementation of the Agenda 2030.

The outcome of the project teams can be products of various types: a video, a campaign, a workshop, a policy paper, an app, a blog etc. The key factor is that the product actually addresses the challenge at hand.

In most cases, these products will still be prototypes and not final products.
