Be a transformational leader - be part of the solution!

This course, based in one of the most sustainable universities in the world, explores leadership and contemporary challenges through the lens of the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs).

You will learn about global challenges relating to the sustainable development goals within industries such as food, energy and clothing. There will be opportunities to focus on your own academic discipline as well as learn from others and to come up with your own sustainable solutions.

The innovative course programme includes debates and discussions, lectures, seminars, practical workshops and games. You will also participate in a unique global research project and produce a project piece to display your new-found expertise in leadership and sustainability.

By the end of this course you should have gained insight into what it takes to be a transformational leader in view of contemporary sustainability challenges. You will be aware of some ways in which different academic disciplines are tackling global issues, and the potential for multi-disciplinary collaboration to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.

To participate, you should have completed at least one year of undergraduate studies, have an interest in leadership and sustainability and have the required English language skills.
