Over the course of the last 12 years, 500 Fellows of the Environmental Leadership Program have received training to increase their leadership capacity and create significant and positive impacts on their organizations, agencies, institutions and businesses. This project will provide the opportunity for those Fellows to come together and create a strategic vision and action plan for the incredible impacts they can make collectively through the Environmental Leadership Program.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The complexity of the environmental issues in our communities and around the country cannot be solved by individuals alone, but must be addressed through collaborations of diverse leaders from a broad range of disciplines and across sectors. For nearly 12 years the ELP has provided training to nearly 500 emerging leaders who have made the leap from good leadership to great leadership. We are now striving to bring these leaders together to move their work towards collective action.
How will this project solve this problem?
Imagine bringing together 100 of the most innovative and passionate emerging leaders in the environmental field, providing them with a platform to engage one another across issues, and creating a space for them to develop a 20 year strategic vision of what they could achieve if they harnessed their talents collectively. From Oct. 14 - 16, 2011, the ELP will do just that - for the first time ever we are creating a venue for our Senior Fellows to dream, create and act together.
Potential Long Term Impact
ELP trains up to 40 emerging leaders annually in its Fellowship Program - as our network continues to grow each year, we have the opportunity to leverage the collective talent of our Fellows to create significant impacts locally, nationally and globally. This project will provide the opportunity for 100 of our 500 Fellows to come together and create a strategic vision and action plan for what they can achieve together by harnessing their innovation, broader networks and commitment to results.
