Policy Kitchen: Biodiversity
How can we ensure biodiversity preservation globally on a political level? Join our Policy Kitchen Day with foraus and the Bosch Alumni Network this 6th October in Berlin and help to find a recipe to this question from either angles: global governance, trade and development cooperation!
The Policy Kitchen Day in Berlin is a partnership of Polis180, foraus, the Swiss open think tank, and the iac Berlin, the alumni network of the Bosch Foundation. It takes place within the Bosch Alumni Network and will bring together 40 members of Polis180 and members of the Bosch Alumni Network. The Policy Kitchen Day will start with an informal gathering on the evening of 5th October while the main event will take place on 6th October from 9.00 to about 18.30. Location is the Community Space of the iac Berlin.
What is Policy Kitchen?
Policy Kitchen is a policy crowd-sourcing methodology developed by foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy in partnership with an international network of open think tanks such as Polis180. It offers a combination of digital crowd-innovation and a series of Policy Cooking Days across different cities. This enables a diverse network of thinkers to find creative solutions to pressing governance challenges.
At each Policy Cooking Day, participants tackle the challenge of biodiversity preservation with the help of experts. The workshop output is uploaded to a digital crowd-innovation platform to further develop the solutions collaboratively with other thinkers online. Subsequently, these ideas will be reviewed by both a crowd and expert jury. The best ideas will be developed into full-form policy advice. They will then benefit from a political communications campaign by foraus and its partners to facilitate real policy impact with crowd-sourced ideas.
