Fellows

The University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) Fellows contribute to key areas of CISL’s work, for example catalysing the formation of a new business or policy collaboration in co-operation with senior CISL staff, helping to shape the content and curriculum for our education programmes, or playing a leading role in the development of a new research study.

Fellows are drawn from professionals in business, policy, civil society and academia. The skills and experience of our Fellows make a substantial contribution to our work in building a sustainable economy.
