European society at risk – Czech and German answers, Czech-German Young Professionals Program (CGYPP)

Kategorie: Die Anderen

The Czech-German Young Professionals Program (CGYPP), established in 2008, is an international network for young experts, multipliers, movers and shakers from Germany and the Czech Republic. The program interlinks the fields of academia, business, media, politics, public administration and NGO.

Each year, 12 young professionals from Germany and the Czech Republic are invited to participate in a series of workshops, and to collaborate on relevant economic, political and social issues.

CGYPP connects people with different professional backgrounds. By exchanging and sharing experiences and perspectives, the participants not only broaden their horizons, improve communication and intercultural skills but also increase their social capital.

The technological advancements in Information and Communication Technologies lead to a dense tissue of economic, political and economic ties that span across national borders and physical barriers. Although for many centuries, Germany and the Czech Republic have shared history and culture, it was their full integration into the globalized world after 1989 that, through intensified economic and trade relations, shifted their links to a whole new level. Current challenges presented by an increased interconnectedness are serious tests for the European integration. What are Czech and German responses

You will explore various aspects of political and social appeals and its various dimensions and compare German and Czech strategies in economic, political and social terms. By exchanging your experiences and visions, you will contribute to a discussion on how do Czech and Germans look toward future. Inspired by new ideas, tools and contacts, you will have a chance to benefit from the program in your individual professional and private life.
