EPSP Batch 2

About EPSP Batch 2


Executive Program for Sustainable Partnership (EPSP) is an executive courses offered by Paramadina University, in close collaboration with CCPHI, and supported by Ford Foundation.


The second batch of EPSP run from May until August 2015, and participated by 17 executives representing the government, companies, and NGOs—the three key sectors of a successful and sustainable partnership. Participants of EPSP Batch 2 were expected to build partnership among those three sectors, plus the recipient communities, in order to accelerate government programs to improve the quality of livelihood within the framework of sustainable development.

At the end of this executive program, all participants presented their prototypes of partnership, which were program designs based on their findings in the field. The prototype presented had been designed within the framework of sustainable development. Hopefully, these prototypes would be implemented by the three key stakeholders.
