2021 Salzburg Global Impact Fellowships Initiative Recruitment

Deadline: Rolling Basis

As part of their mission to challenge current and future leaders to shape a better world, Salzburg Global is seeking to engage the next generation of changemakers through our Impact Fellowships initiative. The goals of the initiative are to:

  1. Create a unique career development opportunity for promising individuals from around the world to build their professional experience and skill-set.
  2. Offer opportunities for cross-cultural learning and to develop global perspectives.
  3. To bring in the knowledge, skills and perspectives of a diverse group of next generation leaders into the work of Salzburg Global.

In 2020, Salzburg Global Seminar and the Nippon Foundation launched Asia Peace Innovators Forum and the Japan-India Transformative Technology Network. Respectively, these aim to:

  • Promote the growth and amplify the impacts of community-driven, private, initiatives for conflict prevention, mediation, and peacebuilding across Asia; and 
  • Maximize the benefits of various new technologies across three related sets of challenges: health systems, accessibility, mobility, inclusion, and living and livable communities.

Participants of these network programs have met virtually during the past year and have formed small teams to design pilot projects intended to advance these objectives in their communities.

Earlier this month, teams presented their pilot concepts to a jury, and a select number of these will be awarded assistance in promoting their ideas to those who could help ensure these concepts can be realized.

Over the coming months, Salzburg Global is looking to build on the successes of the project’s first year and to recruit a new cohort of Japanese and Indian Fellows to the Japan-India Transformative Technology Network.
