Sara Parkin, Founder Director, with Jonathan Porritt, of Forum for the Future presents a live interactive webinar on Sustainability Literate Leadership on 21 October 2010

October 19th, 2010 by Events

Earthscan is holding a live interactive webinar presented by Sara Parkin, founder of Forum for the Future’s MA in Leadership for Sustainability, and author of The Positive Deviant: Sustainability Leadership in a Perverse World.

  • Learn how doing the right thing for sustainability – wherever you are, whatever the odds – can inspire and enable others
  • Discover four habits of thought and seven principles of practice for making sustainability-literate decisions
  • Develop a ‘good enough’ knowledge base from which to act, and design your own journey to confident leadership

About the webcast: Whatever happens after the next climate summit in Cancun, the transition to a sustainable society will require thousands, if not millions of exceptional leaders. Being a positive deviant – doing the right thing wherever you are and whatever the odds – can inspire and enable others.

This webcast will help you understand the core causes of unsustainability, and introduce you to ideas to make sure your decisions are more likely to contribute to sustainability than not – even if you are surrounded the wrong institutional structures and processes and stubbornly uncooperative people.

Sara Parkin is Founder Director, along with Jonathon Porritt, of the UK’s foremost sustainable development institute, Forum for the Future. She established the Forum’s highly-rated Masters course on Leadership for Sustainable Development, now in its 14th year, and works with people and organisations around the world to develop sustainability-literate leadership skills.
