Launch of new global leadership programme contributing to sustainable development
Application is now open for a new global leadership programme; Leadership for Transformative Change. The programme targets leaders from all over the world who are working to contribute to transformative social development in their countries. It is offered by Uppsala University in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Business Sweden, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and SALAR International.
The leadership programme will be open to participants from all sectors of society in low-, middle- and high-income countries. The content is designed in collaboration with the participants and the goal is to contribute to transformative social development in the countries of the participants.
“This programme will provide participants with the tools they need to be able to create new solutions for a more sustainable future.”, says Stefan Swartling Peterson, Professor of Global Transformations for Health at Karolinska Institutet.
Platform for exchange of experiences
“Being a driving actor in social change towards a sustainable society is rarely easy. Therefore, this programme offers a platform where experiences can be exchanged and wisdom can be built jointly across national and sector borders”, says Klas Palm, researcher at Uppsala University and programme director for Leadership for Transformative Change.
Most of the training takes place online, but participants will also have in-person meetings, one of which will be held in Sweden. The programme is free of charge for participants.
Application is now open for the first round of three. 20 leaders from around the world will be offered a spot in the programme which will start in September 2023 and run for 12 months part-time.
