About the programme
From the grass plains of Kenya to the biodiverse coastal ecology at the southern tip of Africa, our residential immersion programmes use the power of place and context to fast-track learning by exposing you to real-world examples of sustainability leadership in action.
The programme combines real-life examples with seminars, conversations, and debates with leading thinkers in the field, learning journeys within different communities and contexts and Fame-Lab style pop-up talks to create a powerful learning experience.
The programme covers a variety of topics related to complexity theory, systems thinking, strategic intelligence and sustainability principles and practices.
Participants not only walk away feeling confident to lead sustainably but are also supported in conceptualising how to put their knowledge into action and start social action projects in their classrooms, communities or homes.

Everything they wanted to teach us was around us and we got a better understanding with our surrounding.Participant
