Why is leadership for sustainability needed? What do you think of when you think of a leader? There are many different types of leadership, each of which has its own set of assets in different teams and situations. This workshop explores the different types of leaders. Participants are given time to consider leadership styles with which they identify.
The goals of this workshop are:
What issues are you or your green team most passionate about? Are you finding it difficult to turn ideas into action? You and your team are not alone! Regardless of your priorities, whether it be waste reduction, raising general awareness about environmental sustainability in schools, or promoting healthy lifestyles – it’s often difficult to translate passion and good ideas into tangible actions! This workshop aims to build that bridge by providing effective tools, tips and tricks to support successful action planning for green teams, events, campaigns or other action projects.
Can one decision or one change really make a difference in the grand scheme of things? Systems thinking is a skill (process) for understanding how things influence one another. Rather than thinking about our world as being made up of individual things, we instead look at it as a complex web of interconnected elements. Through this workshop, students will not only learn about the concept and process of systems thinking, but will get the opportunity to apply this thinking to real-life issues and see why this sort of framing is important for sustainability action projects.
Working in the realm of sustainability takes collaboration and teamwork to navigate the challenges and opportunities. How can we make teams more effective? How can we build positive, inclusive, fun and purposeful teams? This workshop explores strategies to harness a team’s strengths and provide helpful tips for building strong and connected teams together to take action.
