Global search is on for future sustainability leaders

Thursday, 17 December, 2009

The Centre for Sustainability Leadership is looking for people with the drive and potential to become sustainability leaders.

The Centre's Fellowship Program has, for the past five years, produced more than 150 graduates working in business, law, science, engineering, health, government and arts - many of them awarded for their significant efforts towards sustainability.

“Our aim is to create sustainability leaders in every sector of society,” said the Centre's founder and Executive Director Larissa Brown. She said the Centre's motto was simple: “We've tried to get people in positions of power to care; now we're going to get people who care into positions of influence.”

The Fellowship Program equips emerging leaders with a network of like-minded people, skills such as creative thinking and problem solving, effective influencing, relationship building and media advocacy, as well as in-depth knowledge of behavioural and social change.

The course comprises weekly evening workshops, one-to-one coaching, intensive retreats, a mentoring program and project work.

The Centre is currently looking for participants to apply for the 2010 Fellowship Program run in Melbourne and Sydney. Only 25 places are available in each city and applicants from all over the world are welcome.

The program runs from April to November and scholarship places are available.

Further information can be found at International applications close 3 February 2010 and Australian applications 28 February 2010.
