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.

- Professor Jem Bendell

In November the course is online from 11am to 5pm GMT each day, whereas in April 2021 this course will be offered in person over 4 days in the Lake District from 9am to 5pm BST. Both are led by Professor Bendell. Specify which format you prefer when applying.
