AGYLE builds a bridge between young African and German leaders and establishes a sustainable business network. A jury selects forty participants from Germany and African countries. All young leaders will be invited to a (digital) week and an innovative face-to-face event in Berlin later in 2022.
AGYLE’s motto for 2022:
Green innovation – young leaders tackling climate change
Encompassing business, society and politics, climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time. Today, young business leaders in particular have the responsibility and the opportunity to actively contribute to addressing climate change and shaping a future worth living in – be it by developing innovative solutions and green technologies in key industries or by being young leaders who embrace responsibility and sustainability in thought and deed.
Please note: It is not a mandatory requirement for participants to come from a green industry or have previous experience in implementing climate-related projects. Rather, AGYLE is looking for individuals seeking to contribute to addressing the global issue of climate change – with a sustainable mindset and in collaboration with others.
What AGYLE offers
All selected participants have exclusive access to an international business network and to new, long-term business relationships and contacts.
AGYLE actively supports the promotion of individual career development and sharpens the view for the economic relations as well as the cultural characteristics of the participating countries.
