GUBERNA Home of Governance Talks 2022

Following our successful first series of Home of Governance Talks, we are now launching a 2nd series on the theme of "Governance in Transition - Cap 2030".

Almost everyone is convinced of the sustainability idea, but many are still struggling with how to put it into practice.

This initiative is drawn from the various GUBERNA centres and consists of 'live' interviews of a GUBERNA team member with a fascinating personality who has a special experience with the centre's target group. The interviews are 'streamed' from the GUBERNA Home of Governance but can also be viewed on a delayed basis by GUBERNA members.
