An excellent course for those wishing to learn about the latest developments in sustainability from a broad range of world class academics and practitioners. The high caliber of attendees means that the course is also an great forum for meeting other leaders across a range of countries and industries.
The Yale Sustainability Leadership Forum created an unprecedented environment to absorb multidisciplinary thought leadership on every aspect of Sustainability. I was grateful to be amongst a diverse collection of sustainability advocates from around the globe.
YSLF was an excellent opportunity for me to receive a compact overview of the main trends and challenges in our quest to transition to sustainable societies. Listening to and engaging with some of the field’s brightest minds and leading scholars was both inspiring and an opportunity to calibrate some aspects of my work so that I can be more effective and successful.
If sustainability is truly the defining framework for this century, this forum is an invaluable medium for grasping the critical issues and opportunities which will determine our planet’s continuing viability.
YSLF, as a whole, was incredibly life changing... it allowed me to ‘connect the dots’ on a variety of factors that affect the work that I do on a daily basis within my role at work and how I view myself as a global citizen. I gained remarkable insight on how to articulate some of those issues within my work as a civic leader to affect local policies on the environmental practices within the communities that I serve.
YSLF is ‘primus interpares’. Nothing compares to it. It is a program that champions the leadership drive expected to execute the agenda of climate change and environmental sustainability.
In less than three days, I gained two years worth of fresh expertise and updates about where we stand in the area of sustainability!
The speakers shared tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge across many disciplines, with a focus on practical, vetted solutions that deepened my understanding of sustainability challenges and solutions. I left feeling inspired that we do have the tools and potential to address and overcome the herculean challenges related to global sustainability.
YSLF was an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest thinking in sustainability problems from the experts who are developing the financial, technological, and policy solutions on a national and international level.
YSLF gave me an opportunity to expand my horizons about the challenges and opportunities facing my industry and my clients. Participating with individuals from around the world and around the corner added unique viewpoints that one wouldn’t get in a “typical” conference. Interpreting the content through the eyes of so many different perspectives was extremely valuable. A must do for Sustainability leaders in any large corporation.
