Winterschool for Thinktankers 2017



January 2017 

From Sunday 22 to Saturday 29 January 2017, the Think Tank Hub, in collaboration with On Think Tanks and foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy, organized the Winter School for Think Tankers, the first ever training for tomorrow’s Think Tank leaders. The event took place in the heart of International Geneva and was delighted to host 14 proactive individuals from around the world: Nigeria, China, Ukraine, France, Brazil, South Africa, Austria, Germany, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Switzerland and Iran.

It was a unique opportunity for them to develop their knowledge and understanding of Think Tanks and to prepare themselves for a future as policy changemakers. More particularly, it offered a practical approach, rather than just theory, with input and advice coming from a range of professionals.
