GPODS is a 3-month online program for public policy practitioners, business professionals, energy and climate change experts, entrepreneurs, academicians, scholars, and strategic analysts to act as a launchpad for their careers. We are conducting this program in partnership with Global Policy Insights (a centrist policy research think tank with operations in New Delhi, London, and New York), EnviPol (an environmental consulting firm), Association of NGOs and CSOs for South-South Cooperation (Part of United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation), and the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The idea behind GPODS is also to support upcoming policymakers in their professional careers by giving them the right exposure, experience, and training through the best professionals across the world and making these resources more accessible to people in these tough times.
Some of our other mentors in the first cohort were the following:
- Justice Luc Lavrysen, Judge, Constitutional Court of Belgium; Chair, European Union Forum of Judges for the Environment.
- Justice Michael Wilson, Judge, Supreme Court of Hawaii
- Brennan Van Dyke, Chief, Capacity Development and Innovation Branch, Science Division, UN Environment Programme.
- Benedikt Franke, CEO, Munich Security Conference.
Our Applications for the GPODS Second Cohort are open now! Our Fellowship will run from February 7 to April 30, 2021.
Early Bird Application date: 3rd Jan 2021
Late Application date: 17th Jan 2021
GPODS is made for students and professionals who are at a Watershed Threshold in their academic or professional lives. The Watershed Threshold would signify a significant moment at which the professional would seek to transit into bigger roles in her/his career or scholarly pursuits. This would mean an effort which is catalyzed by GPODS, to delve deeper into areas of their respective interests or expertise by dedicating time and energy towards multi-disciplinary learning to hone their skills - all while developing an intra and inter-peer network of global leaders.;
An important thing to note is that what we value in our Global Fellows is their passion to bring about a positive change globally, and not their age, nationality, gender, or background.
