Partnerships2030 at think17: Joint Learning for Sustainable Development

On December 12, think17 took place in Mannheim Castle – a meeting of approximately 100 people working on sustainability to exchange views on sustainable development within the framework of peer learning formats. The mutual exchange of experiences and knowledge was organized by the Peer School for Sustainable Development.

Within the framework of this meeting, participants from science, foundations and the field of sustainability exchanged ideas in different sessions on topics such as circular economy, impact measurement and sustainable finance. 21 sessions of 45 minutes each were held by the participants themselves so that they could not only learn from each other, but also give input and bring in their own perspective. Partnerships2030 contributed by presenting Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships (MSPs) so that participants could find out what a MSP is and whether it makes sense to use the MSP-approach in their specific context. Additionally, the session dealt with the following questions: “In case it makes sense to use the MSP-approach, how can it be implemented?” and “What needs to be taken into account while doing so?” The interactive design of the learning formats and the small number of participants per session promoted exchange on equal footing and made it possible to deal with each other in a spirit of trust.
