Training young leaders to face the environmental crisis in an innovative and transformative way
An opportunity to learn and build collectively with international experts on the subject
Faced with the global environmental crisis and the current conditions of unsustainability, complexity and uncertainty, we need to rethink ways of learning that generate a profound change in thinking, feelings and actions of our society with the Planet. There many decades scientists around the world warn about the degradation of biodiversity, the fragmentation and destruction of ecosystems and the extinction of many species.
In this context, education and training of young leaders appears as the main path capable of promoting a transformation in our perception and relationship with the world.
It is an innovative approach that works with ecological, social and emotional aspects of the planetary environmental crisis. That invites us to question values, thoughts and actions, leading to a change of paradigm, of behavior, to regenerate ourselves . That inspires us and invites us to transform education to transform the world .
