Global Future Fellows
(GFF) 2022

Global Future Fellows (GFF) is a short-term fellowship program initiated by Pijar Foundation, in line with our spirit to promote ‘collaborative governance’ between public, private, and community sectors.

GFF, and ‘collaborative governance’ generally, reflects Indonesia’s traditional ‘Gotong Royong’ spirit, which is collective resource-sharing to execute complex tasks.

Each GFF edition will take on a different thematic issue.

GF Fellows are selected strategic public, private, and community sector leaders, who will engage in a series of knowledge exchange and upgrading activities, to build multi-sectoral networks, identify synergy areas, and consolidate learnings into a practical ‘action roadmap’.
The action roadmap (Rencana Aksi Bersama) will be coordinated with a high-level panel of key decision-makers, to guide key players in a common direction.

GFF’s impact will extend beyond the program’s end-date.
We expect GFF to produce a robust, multi-sectoral, global network of problem-solvers and a launchpad for scaled, sustained, and impactful collaborations.
This premier year of GFF will focus on the topic of “Safeguarding Indonesia’s Energy Transition”.

As G20 President, Indonesia has chosen energy transition as one of its three priorities, with the unique opportunity to amplify global momentum towards cleaner energy sources and lower emissions, while still fostering equitable socio-economic development.

Indonesia’s energy transition requires not just the installation of innovative technologies, but also an enabling environment in terms of re-shaped mindsets, market practices, as well as policies. According to the International Institute for Sustainable Development, the Government of Indonesia would need to invest around USD8 billion annually to achieve its 2025 renewable energy targets over the next decade.

GFF 2022 was first announced by Pijar Foundation during the AVPN Global Conference 2022 in Nusa Dua, Bali - an official side event of Indonesia's G20 Presidency.
The announcement took place during an AVPN and Pijar Foundation joint luncheon convening major global philanthropists with strong concerns in energy transition and Indonesian Government leaders.

The luncheon was attended by Vice Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) of the Republic of Indonesia, Pahala Mansury; Senior Advisor to the Minister of Investment of the Republic of Indonesia/Head of Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM), M. Pradana Indraputra; AVPN Advisor, Arsjad Rasjid; Chief Executive Officer of AVPN, Naina Batra; Executive Director of Pijar Foundation, Ferro Ferizka; as well as major global philanthropists.
Today’s challenges require ‘future-fit’ leaders – leaders who are forward-thinking, risk-embracing, and partnership-advancing.

Through interactions with experts, decision-makers, peers, as well as site-visits, GFF will equip participants with the knowledge, skill-sets and networks needed to safeguard the crucial issue of energy transition, while being cognizant of the unique Indonesian local context.
This year’s GFF will host 24 selected mid-career Indonesian leaders from the public, private and community sectors with strong track record in the issue of energy.
Participants must commit to attend all sessions, which will be delivered by renowned international and national speakers.
