Apply for Leadership for Transformative Change

Published: 17 February 2023

We are excited to launch "Leadership for Transformative Change", a programme for leaders within sustainable change. We are looking for leaders with the ambition to find new solutions for a sustainable future by combining experience with new knowledge.

Twenty leaders from across the world will in 2023 be offered a unique opportunity to join a leadership programme for societal transformation. 

The programme in brief

The purpose of the programme is to support each participant's capacity for transformative change to a sustainable society and also contribute to development of their organisation's capacity. The programme will work with holistic perspectives on societal transformation and sustainability. The participants will be supported to raise their motivation and knowledge into actions for a sustainable future. The programme will be action oriented, based on co-creation and the participant will work on their own transformation projects in their own context.

The programme will be offered in English in a part-time format (20%) over a period of 12 months. A majority of the programme modules will be organised online, but all participants will also come together for two in-person meetings (one in Sweden). The programme will be offered for three cohorts of 20 participants each. The first cohort of participants are scheduled to start in September 2023 and will meet in Sweden in October 2023. The programme will be offered at no cost to participants.

Are you interested or do you know anyone who might be?

Please spread this information further within you network both inside and outside academia.

Last day for application for the first cohort is 5 April.
