Need to Develop Environmental Leaders

Recently, the human race is faced with various issues relating to sustainability, and dealing with these issues is an urgent matter. In addition, in the midst of the current global economic crisis, reforms in national economic and societal structures are required through policies to revitalise the economic society by environmental conservation, such as “Green New Deal” or “Green Job” schemes. To promote the construction of a sustainable society, the development of “environmental leaders”, or persons to take on the “greening” of economic society, is indispensable.

Objectives of EcoLeaD

The Environmental Consortium for Leadership Development (EcoLeaD) is a practical platform in which all stakeholders of government, academia, industry and civil society can participate, exchange information relating to environmental leadership development and interact with each other. EcoLeaD aims to develop environmental leaders by linking the existing educational activities of universities and activities of businesses, and by promoting cooperation among all stakeholders of government, academia, industry and civil society. The main constituents of EcoLeaD are universities, private companies, governments, non-governmental organisations and international organisations.

Fields for T-shaped Environmental Leaders

To further advance the greening of economic society, T-shaped environmental leaders, who have internalised environmental perspective into their own professional areas, are needed in government, private companies and civil society.
