Successful international institutions (CERN)
Successful projects that need support (COWSHED, Humanitarian Encylopedia) Successful national institutions or projects (Cervantes, Confucius, Goethe etc.)
Bottom-up, inclusive research processes, cross-level communication
Support the youth! The girls!
Tell about the workshop in our own context. Make more people know about the SDGs.
Do "neutral" (international, scientific) institutions fail more than "cultural" institutions?
Successful national institutions examples, e.g. COWSHED (bottom-up approach) Feeback system? Make sucessful initiatives visibles
Impact evaluation and learning as a precursor to scaling Focus on the YOUTH
Successful international institutions examples: CERN, Humanitarian Encylopedia, Geneva Water
Hub, Future Earth, I2I.org, WWF
Successful bilateral institutions examples: Overseas Development Institutes (bilateral)
How does our topic provide an opportunity for scaling education for the SDGs?
Science as a bridge, like a common language
Omnipresence of science in our everyday life
Science to solve problems of the global economy
Science can address all SDGs goals, it can touch everything
Working together for common noble goals
Promote knowledge, understanding, and partnership
Global initiative beyond the limitations of nation states
A more inclusive approach to the dissemination of science
Diplomacy is about openess, diversity, getting people from different backgrounds together to develop new ideas
Exchange between people, institutions and fields. Not only science but also culture and language. Dialogues, exchanges between scientific institutions
International diplomacy as a tool to navigate shared spaces and shared resources (e.g. a river)
Science as fact-based, rational knowledge
Data-based, fact-based decision making Promote rational approach
For example, regarding Climate Change issues
Science as a tool
Scientific literacy among decision makers
About the positive impacts of science on society & sustainability
Promote knowledge for new solutions
Introducing science to people who aren't used to it. Show how it is benificial, how to use it in policies at the national level. Science as a way to inform policy. For instance, how to measure, how to track.
Science & the local
Audience for diplomacy? Context?
At the international level, scientific-based, no bias
At the national level, solution-oriented scientific knowledge
Diplomacy exchanges in informal places, within research processes in local communities
International Panel for Climate ChangeExample of how difficult it is to agree and act
big success, established model of peaceful collaborationSister of CERN (in Middle East)
Same as Confucius institutes, provide opportunities for people from different backgrounds to share and better understand each other
Governmental support for local implementation (policy transfer, trainings)
Scientific institutes (instituts pasteur, far-east schools, ...), very little effect on diplomacyGeneva Water Hub
Bring together local communities, innovators from all over the world
To tackle issues such as employment for the youth, access to new technology, access to land Send people to their own communities, give them tools and land, and a task
