It’s time to re-define leadership.
We can only create a world with sustainable landscapes through creating a new type of leadership that values ecosystems, empowers people, and facilitates positive change.
This immersive 4-day experience begins on Nov 29 with the Landscape Leadership Workshop, delivered by the GLF in partnership with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative, and continues to GLF Bonn 2018. The workshop will provide students and young professionals with the tools to become powerful, actionable leaders through
- sessions on how to facilitate, pitch, and design holistic projects
- a knowledge marketplace featuring speakers from leading organizations and experts
- community building activities
- thematic project teams who will co-create and deliver workshops at GLF Bonn 2018.
After receiving over 360 applications from across the globe, we have selected over 40 young leaders to gather in Bonn and re-define leadership in the age of sustainable development. Meet the participants.
Come experience workshops designed and led by young landscape leaders.
