Global Future Fellows 2023:

Achieving Food Security Amid Global Tensions

Pijar Foundation successfully organized the inaugural Global Future Fellows (GFF) in September - October 2022, in Bali and Jakarta.

The second edition of GFF will focus on the theme "Achieving Food Security Amid Global Tensions" with 36 Fellows from the public, private, and community sectors.

The GFF 2023- Food Security aims to produce a Collaborative Action Plan, identifying collaboration areas to achieve food security amid global tensions.
GFFellows are select strategic public, private, and community sector leaders, who will engage in a series of knowledge exchange and upgrading activities, to build multi-sectoral networks, identify synergy areas, and consolidate learnings into a practical 'action roadmap'.
The action roadmap (Rencana Aksi Bersama) will be coordinated with a high-level panel of key decision-makers to guide key players in a common direction.

GFF’s impact will extend beyond the program’s end date.
We expect GFF to produce a robust, multi-sectoral, global network of problem-solvers and a launchpad for scaled, sustained, and impactful collaborations.
GFF will host 36 selected mid-career Indonesian leaders from the public, private and community sectors with a strong track records in the issue of food security.

Participants must commit to attending all sessions, which will be delivered by renowned international and national speakers.

Collaborative Governance Framework
The concept of collaborative governance is deeply rooted in societies around the world. In Indonesia, it is closely related to the traditional principle of "Gotong Royong” - collective resource-sharing to execute complex tasks.

The process of collaborative governance is one that is human-centred and begins with an understanding of a particular situation from different points of view.
