We know that positive results come from good partnerships. Hewlett Packard, Ben and Jerry's, Google, Apple, Microsoft and Twitter are all the result of partnerships. In the same way, we can make a meaningful impact on society when private and public sectors join forces. That is why there is now a trend towards developing public-private partnership models combining the strengths of both sectors.
At The Hague Summer School we look at the opportunities and challenges for both sectors and how we can connect stakeholders at a local, national and international level.
This summer course, made up of elective modules, looks at connecting the private and public sector through the eyes of engineers, human rights and security professionals and entrepreneurs.
