Course content

You'll begin with a six day residential in the Lake District, where 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. From there you will choose a range of online and residential modules, which include access to fells, lakes and woodlands.

We believe that our use of experiential learning and nature as a venue and inspiration towards sustainable leadership is a world first. This course is the flagship offering of the Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS) which is fast growing to be a hub for critical sustainability leadership dialogue, research and education.

Our internationally renowned team of facilitators and guest speakers offer a wealth of knowledge and experience, which will help you focus on personal, organisational and systemic change.
