The LEAD International Session has been a core feature of LEAD’s “Leadership for Sustainable Development” Fellows Training programme for more than 15 years. It focuses on the global dimension of sustainability. The session explores the relationships between global interdependence, emerging challenges, and complex and systemic solutions. Graduates from our 12 national and regional Member Programmes, typically representing over 30 countries each year, come together at the International Session.
“Across the world, from Mexico to China, from India to Brazil, and from Europe to Africa, LEAD is working with young people of achievement in business, government, NGOs, media and academia to help create the successor generation which the planet needs.”
-Lord Holme, Chairman (2004-2008), LEAD International
LEAD is an international non-profit organisation with a fast growing network of 2000 leaders in more than 90 countries. Our shared mission is to inspire leadership for a sustainable world.
We do this by searching worldwide for outstanding people, developing their leadership potential through our innovative training programmes and working with them to mobilise others to make a real difference to the future of this planet.
Our LEAD offices across the world deliver training programmes that challenge traditional notions of leadership with progressive participatory techniques. Using LEAD’s experiential learning approach, our participants learn through multi-stakeholder dialogue, real-world examples of action, and inclusive cross-cultural processes.
We train business executives, government officials, academics, NGO directors, activists, educationalists and media professionals. Our multi-lingual training team works with top-level experts and practitioners from around the world who focus on emerging issues relevant to leadership and sustainable development.
We are a unique international network of professionals and training organisations working in all areas of sustainable development. To find out how Fellows stay connected within the network click here.
