Agora Verkehrswende is launching a fellowship programme for young professionals from across Africa to gain a deeper insight into the politics, regulation and discussion of transport decarbonisation. The aim of the programme is to discuss the developments on the African continent at large, and in the participants’ countries in particular. You will be equipped with the tools needed to develop strategies and building blocks for a national discourse on transport transformation. The programme is part of the Rethinking Transport project of Agora Verkehrswende and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). 


Agora Verkehrswende will offer six young professionals from the African continent the opportunity to participate in the second round of the Agora Sustainable Transport Fellowship Programme at its office in Berlin. Over four weeks, from August 19 to September 13, 2024, you will work, learn and discuss how to transform the transport sector on the African continent. 

The programme will be full-time and will entail deep-dive sessions led by Agora Verkehrswende team members and renowned German and European experts; co-creation sessions; space for individual preparation; creative work, reflection and clarification; and an excursion. In the end, you, with the support of Agora Verkehrswende, will be equipped to develop and enhance strategies for national discourse on transport transformation in your home countries.
