Learning approach

Learning approach

The content is taught using our distinctive, collaborative learning approach with a strong emphasis on learning from shared experience and best-practice in relevant sectors and other industries.

Project-based learning to support strategy development and implementation is a key feature of the programme, as is the opportunity to engage and collaborate with a world-class network of contributors and practitioners from business, NGOs, academia and government, who combine expert perspectives with real candour and constructive challenge.


The programme content is explored predominantly through two workshops, which take participants on a journey: first building their awareness of key sustainability issues and their relevance to business, as well as deepening understanding of the global context and potential for system-wide change; and then exploring practical approaches to achieving change in their organisations, embedding sustainability at both a strategic and operational level.

Each workshop provides a mixture of expert input and commentary, intensive group discussion, facilitated project planning and review, opportunities for peer support, and informal networking between participants.
