Global Perspectives Inititative

The Global Perspectives Initiative believes that a higher sense of responsibility leads to more opportunities, and more opportunities lead to a better future for everyone.

That is why we are promoting and supporting the discourse on a sustainable and balanced global development and strongly encourage Germany to increase its international responsibility in global development cooperation. We bring together stakeholders from politics, business, media and civil society and inform, discuss and work together to develop new approaches.

By doing so, we support Germany in fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015. The Global Perspectives Initiative sees itself as a national platform in a global discourse for a fairer world in the future. You can find out more about our initiative following this link.

Our Program Lines

Our four Program Lines form the basis of our contentual work. Global Responsibility is the GPI´s cross-sectoral issue and provides the framework for the further three thematic priorities Peace, Business as Part of the Solution and Global Health.

We live in a complex world and believe that global challenges must be understood and thought through holistically. Our aim at all times is to strengthen multilateralism and enable exchange and cooperation at eye level. To this end, we offer a network and a platform to jointly develop international solutions to diverse problems. In order to promote sustainable economic and social development, both health and peace are basic preconditions for us. Armed conflicts, as well as a lack in health infrastructure, are enormous obstacles to equitable global development. In addition, we want to foster entrepreneurial partnerships and investments in countries of the global south in order to shape economic development in a fair and sustainable manner.

The geographical focus of our work rests on the region of Sub-Saharan Africa.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to:

The United Nations have defined 17 goals for a sustainable development: to end hunger, to guarantee education and to promote economic growth, jobs, climate change, and justice – worldwide. It is about shared responsibility and opportunities: Economic growth requires education. Increased social equality can lead to reduced levels of poverty by enabling economic growth. And when poverty ends, markets are created. When we learn to understand and consider the connections and correlations, we can secure the future of the world and profit in a sustainable way.
