"The question of reaching sustainability is not about if we will have enough energy, enough food, or other tangible resources - those we have.
The question is: will there be enough leaders in time?"
- Dr. Göran Broman and Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt, programme founders
Global society's current path is unsustainable. At the same time, exciting possibilities for new ways forward are emerging - ways that bring human activity into harmony with the greater social and ecological systems that support us, while building better lives for all. How do we change course, to create this better future?
We become the leaders and change agents the world needs. We learn to understand our complex world better and to collaborate more strategically and systemically across borders, sectors and disciplines. We transform the ways we think, plan, make, act and lead, in order to co-create a vibrant, sustainable future.
