Our environment is in crisis
With life on earth itself at risk, the demands and pressures on today’s conservation professionals are huge, and personal resilience and the ability to support others, paramount.
Investing in leaders in the conservation and sustainability sectors is critical and often overlooked. We need leaders who can cross the boundaries of sector, generation, professional discipline and belief, and who can build cross sector collaborations that deliver results.
