Engagement Practices

As the Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability (CLiGS), we are particularly interested in helping people influence and mobilize decision-making towards more sustainable forms of development. To affect meaningful and lasting change, this form of leadership needs to come from all sectors and a wide-range of professions, disciplines, cultures, and ideologies, because sustainability challenges occur at the nexus of economic, ecological, and social systems.  Through our engagement, research, graduate and professional education programs, CLiGS builds capacity within individuals to be agents of change from within their organizations, communities, professions, and networks to strategically intervene and transform systems.  At the core of the practices and strategies CLiGS is advancing is collaboration and leadership for sustainable development.
