Speak to an advisor

On this four day intensive class, you will be challenged and supported in a highly inter-disciplinary exploration of both sustainability and leadership where orthodoxies will be deconstructed so you can more clearly identify a pathway for your future as a leader of social and organisational change.

Discussions with peers striving to be sustainable leaders, triggered by remarkable guest lecturers and facilitated by world-class tutors will help you explore the future of your vocation as a sustainable leader as climate disruption increases.

The course involves experts with international reputation in the fields of sustainability and leadership, including:

  • Professor Jem Bendell
  • Visiting Professor Richard Little, Impact International
  • Katie Carr, independent facilitator

Led by Professor Jem Bendell, this course will be offered in person on our Ambleside campus over 4 days in the heart of the English Lake District on 12-13 and 15-16 July from 9am to 5pm BST. Wednesday July 14 will be a free day for personal study, reflection and walks.
