Launch of the Futures Forward Academy
LAUNCH OF THE FUTURES FORWARD ACADEMY
The Office of the Commissioner for Sustainable Development and Future Generations of HM Government of Gibraltar are proud to announce the webinar to officially launch the Futures Forward Academy.
The webinar will also feature a talk by Juan Verde “The Biden Harris Administration: Climate and Leadership. Both exciting events will take place on the 11th of March at 16:00pm CET (10:00 EST). This launch event is proudly co-hosted by Alamo Solutions and The Gibraltar American Chamber of Commerce.
The Futures Forward Academy is a leadership programme relevant to young people aged between 20 to 30 who wish to play a role in creating a sustainable future for Gibraltar. Developed against a backdrop of the health crisis arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, economic challenges that arise from Brexit, as well as the climate emergency, the Academy will support future leaders as they learn to adapt to such unforeseen challenges and prepare for complex future scenarios.
The Academy presents a means of unlocking the potential of young leaders and fostering their active role in key sustainability issues. As an individual they will develop the know-how to inform and influence change and the ability to see the ‘bigger picture’. As a cohort they gain a collaborative support network of equally driven change-makers. Participants will represent a new generation of leaders who understands the need for strategic engagement and planning for the future.
The event will begin with a talk by Alamo Solution’s founder and president Juan Verde, who will discuss the transition to the Biden administration in the U.S. and the effect it will have on sustainability and climate change in the coming years. Verde has extensive experience in the public and private sectors, having previously served in the Obama administration as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Europe and Eurasia at the United States Department of Commerce. He is also an internationally renowned corporate strategist, specializing in innovative solutions to sustainability problems.
