Welcome


From Environment to Sustainability
Megatrends of the 21st Century

Yale University  |  September 13 - 15, 2017

Are you and your company on top of the megatrends in sustainability?

The Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum is a three-day program exploring sustainability as an overarching framework for life in the 21st century. An integrated policy concept, sustainability diverges from approaches to environmental protection and economic development that were pursued in the 20th century.

The Forum is designed for professionals from all sectors of society: finance, industry, academia, government, and not-for profit.

The Forum offers both the conceptual and practical tools to help policy makers at all levels of government, public and private sector executives, and anyone in a leadership role to advance sustainability in their workplace. The Forum is indispensable for those wanting or needing to stay abreast of the major changes in environmental thinking in recent years.

The diversity of the class sets this program apart, providing participants with a diverse network of professionals engaged in meaningful sustainability work across sectors and across the globe.

YSLF was incredibly life changing... it allowed me to ‘connect the dots’ on factors that affect the work that I do on a daily basis and how I view myself as a global citizen. I gained remarkable insight on how to articulate some of those issues as a civic leader to affect local policies on the environmental practices within the communities that I serve.
