Forging long-term international ties: The Fellows' Network Meetings

The bi-annual Fellows' Network Meetings bring together all former participants of the annual exchange in order to strengthen the relations between alumni.

Up to now, more than 400 young leaders have taken part in the German-Israeli Young Leaders Exchange. In order to support and sustain those ties which have been built during the yearly exchange programs, the Bertelsmann Stiftung holds regular Fellows’ Network Meetings. All former participants are invited to these reunions which normally run over the time span of three days and consist of workshops as well as group building activities. The location of the Fellows’ Network Meetings alternates between Germany and Israel.
