Course overview 2014 (pdf)

Building Competence for Sustainability

The challenges of sustainability have reached the entire globalized world. Success and failure in moving towards a more sustainable way of living on this planet affects everybody. For us, the key to sustainable development lies in bringing together professional competence, stakeholder perspectives, political negotiation and result-oriented implementation - for responsible business, people-oriented public services and a strong civil society.

As an international non-profit organization we believe in collective leadership skills for sustainability and the capacity to dialogue – for jointly created solutions across sectors, institutions, nations and cultures. We globally support leaders and change agents in private companies, public institutions and civil society who anchor their action in the concern for the greater good and the future of humankind on this planet.

With our capacity building programs, process support and research we foster innovative and effective cross-sector cooperation, stakeholder dialogues and a climate of collective leadership. We build competence for sustainability and create a community of future-oriented leaders.


StakeholderDialogues.net is a first!

The interactive learning space for practitioners from the private sector, the public sector, and civil society organizations acting in multi-stakeholder environments goes online.
