LEADING CHANGE CAPITAL IS A BIENNIAL YOUTH AND YOUNG PROFESSIONAL SUSTAINABILITY SUMMIT INTEGRATED WITH GLOBE CAPITAL.
For nearly two decades, Leading Change events have brought together sustainability leaders from across the country. The young people who are drawn to apply as delegates are mature, forward-thinking individuals who recognize the value in expanding and diversifying their connections across different disciplines, industries, viewpoints, identities, and generations.
Leading Change provides a brave space to practice conversations and new ways of working together. Now more than ever, our country – and our world – need leaders who are able to work across different:
sectors to develop innovative solutions to accelerate towards a cleaner economy;
party lines to appreciate different perspectives on value and move solutions forward; and
identities and generations to ensure a future that is prosperous and socially just for all.
As our Leading Change Capital programming goes virtual, we found an opportunity to widen the scope of our agenda to include (optional) pre-forum sessions focused on skill development and peer learning opportunities. Those sessions were recorded for delegates to revisit prior to the main event.
YOUNG SUSTAINABILITY LEADERS ARE DRIVING CANADA FORWARD.
Leading Change Capital will include: keynotes, collaborative workshops, open discussions, and mentoring sessions. By the end of their experience, Leading Change delegates are expected to walk away feeling more confident, prepared, and supported to take action. The experience is designed to:
connect youth delegates with a diverse pool of peers and mentors;
equip them with the information, tools, and strategies needed to move the needle on pressing issues; and
empower them to lead boldly and look out for each other.
Leading Change Capital 2021 delegates will also have access to GLOBE Capital 2021. Join North American and global leaders, investors, innovators, and policymakers at the marquee event for scaling the clean economy. GLOBE Capital offers diverse activities and programming so you can build the experience that works for you.
