Leadership, Sustainability, and Ethics Youth Course Ends! Find out dates for Courses in 2018!

Our third online youth course this year on Leadership, Sustainability, and Ethics has ended with much energy and high participation!

This training programme is designed for young people, 18-35 years old, who aim to develop and expand their capacity as leaders in the creation of more just, sustainable, and peaceful societies. In  a way it contributes to the UNESCO Global Action Programme on ESD and with SDG 4.7

The programme invites participants to engage through an online platform, social media, and local actions to amplify their knowledge and skills in the critical areas of:

  • Leadership
  • Sustainability
  • Ecoliteracy
  • System Thinking
  • Ethics
  • Facilitation
  • The Earth Charter

This past English course started on 19 June and for 10 weeks participants engaged in the course content from their hometowns through the platform and their facebook group. During this course we had participants from Kenya, Nigeria, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Japan, India, Spain, US, UK, and the Netherlands. Just a few of the many workshops implemented to finish the program included; Sustainability Indicators in Banking in Nigeria, How to Apply Systems Thinking in our Day-to-Day lives, and Children and Sustainability in Cameroon.

Our final course for the year started on September 11- November 20 and will be facilitated in Spanish. The programme calls all youth leaders who speak Spanish to train themselves on becoming sustainability leaders in their communities and to strengthen their capacities in sustainability leadership. In this final training program for 2017 we have participants from Venezuela, Mexico, Spain, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru, and Paraguay sharing their rich leadership experiences in each of their countries.
