Carl Friedrich Goerdeler-Kolleg for Good Governance

The Goerdeler Kolleg is a one-year professional development program for committed leaders who champion social responsibility in public administration, business, and civil society.

We support social change and promote the commitment of individuals to the common good. We regard strengthening people as a driver of change. For us, every change starts with the individual – and many local changes can set broad social change in motion.

Our work focuses on the concept of good governance. We understand good governance as controlling social processes in a way that prioritizes the common good. This includes the responsible handling of power and resources as well as the constructive design of relations between government, market, and civil society players.

The Goerdeler Kolleg supports current and future leaders from all areas of society in incorporating the principles of good governance in their direct professional environment and volunteering activities. By acquiring knowledge and skills and developing robust networks, participants are better equipped to initiate sustainable change processes and shape social change effectively and in line with democratic principles.
