Conservation Leadership

Furthering Conservation Through Effective Leadership


As we live in the future of a decade ago, never before has mankind been so uncertain about the future, and at the same time, never before have we been in such a position to solve the challenges of our time. As we stand at the edge of a new world, there exists a sense of fear, anticipation and anxiety regarding the seemingly unfamiliar but not too distant future. But how do we create the world that we want, rather than a world that gets handed down to us?

As conservationists and sustainability champions, we have failed to communicate our message in an effective and compelling way. As a catalyst for change, we have to realise that sustainability is not about saving the environment, but rather about saving ourselves who just so happens to rely upon the environment for our very existence. Without that link between the environment and society, our message will fail, and our impact will be lost.

The Conservation Leadership Workshop focuses upon becoming a catalyst for change by stepping up to the conservation and sustainability challenge, and communicating your message to the world in the most effective way possible. Presented by author, professional speaker and conservationist, Jonathan Leeming.
