Sponsors:
The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread and The Leopold Leadership Program, Stanford University
Goals:

The Leopold Leadership Program provides researchers with the skills, approaches, and theoretical frameworks for translating their knowledge to action and catalyzing change to address the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges. The program provides leadership training to 20 outstanding academic researchers from across North America who are working on environmental and/or sustainability issues. The training for fellows is designed around a powerful question: What does it mean to be a leader in addressing today's environmental and sustainability challenges? The goals of the training are twofold: • Provide academic environmental leaders with the skills, strategic thinking, and presence to mobilize and set directions for building solutions; and • Create a network of environmental leaders who share both a common language and set of experiences and practices.
