Good news for young administrators in Italy: PUBLICA – Scuola Anci per giovani amministratori will provide 30 scholarships for as many administrators under 36, to participate in three of the School of Transnational Governance's executive training seminars (ETS).
Through the STG’s collaboration with PUBLICA, young administrators of Italian municipalities will get the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and gain hands-on experience on strategic issues of local governance. The cooperation is a win-win situation for both sides, as STG executive director Fabrizio Tassinari explains:
Breaking policy silos and developing practices of governing beyond national boundaries happens at every level. Cities and mayors are becoming an essential component of transnational governance. Therefore, we warmly welcome the ANCI initiative and we look forward to including the inputs and concerns of local government systematically in the teaching and training offer of the STG.
PUBLICA is a reference point in Italy in the training of public administrators. Addressing mayors and councillors under 36, it provides a diversified educational offer for those who aim to acquire skills and tools to better govern the growing complexity of cities and territories.
The selected candidates can apply for the following executive trainings:
15 Scholarships for Executive Training Mastering Negotiation Across Boundaries (23-26 March 2020)
4 Scholarships for Executive Training Migration Communication Strategies: Effective Approaches to Depolarize the Debate (2 - 3 April 2020)
11 Scholarships for Executive Training Shaping Migration Policies-How to Make Better Migration Policies: Human Mobility in the Mediterranean (13-15 May 2020)
