You'll have everything needed to become a well-regarded specialist in your field, so get on the right path to your future as a sustainable leader.
We believe that our use of experiential learning and nature as a venue and inspiration is a world first, and has helped the Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS) grow into a hub for critical sustainability leadership dialogue, research and education.

Learn from top class tutors such as: -Professor Jem Bendell -Dr David F. Murphy -Richard Little (from Impact International) -Dr Kate Rawles -Sue Cox -Leander Bindewald
