Course aim

Nudge and The Leadership Group have developed this three-day ‘pressure cooker’ as an opportunity for young future leaders to equip themselves with the leadership style necessary, the network and the publicity to realise their goals. Participants will gain insight into their own talents by means of a development assessment, role-plays and case studies. During the Challenge, the participants will be transformed into a network of future leaders. They will be challenged to share their vision and work, to excel in debate and dialogue, to inspire with speeches and to show team spirit. On occasion, they will be allowed to lean back and listen to world-class speakers, after which they will sink their teeth into a Global Challenge. They will compete for the award of: Best Global Young Leader in Sustainability 2015.
