Leadership Program

Sustainability Leadership Program



Today more than ever, society needs committed and creative leaders to promote a world in which economic development can be attained for the benefit of all while conserving the planet’s natural capital and improving people’s living conditions.  Our mission is to develop leaders who will address our present challenges and opportunities so that future generations can enjoy better options than those available today.

We are accepting APPLICATIONS for the 2021 Sustainability Leadership Program.

This program is designed to provide fertile ground for emerging leaders in the community that are passionate about sustainability. Participants will learn how to implement innovative solutions to achieve social, economic and ecological wellbeing while developing strong professional relationships with local change-makers.


“The Sustainable Leadership Program has insightful, market-based education to help local leaders within the community drive impact through sustainability. I am impressed with the high level speakers, educational content, and interactive on-site learning that helps everyone involved collaborate and share best practices.” – Aubrey McCormick, VP Sustainable Business Consulting



This class typically meets one day a month from March through October 9am-4pm.  With considerations around Covid we are conducting the 2020 program virtually by meeting every Thursday from 9:30-11am.  If concerns persist into Spring of 2021, we will conduct next year’s program virtually as well.  We’ll keep you updated! Program is limited to 20 participants and we will review applications as we receive them.  Application deadline is December 11, 2020.
