About the programme

29 Jul - 09 Aug 2012
Lucca, Italy

Our International Leadership Programmes take the form of a 12 day intensive training, where participants from many different cultures, religions and socio-economic backgrounds come together to form an international learning community.

The programme provides an opportunity to experiment with new models, creating a holistic view of the world we live in that is underpinned by the need for shared values and an awareness of our ultimate interconnection.

Content of our International Leadership Programmes includes:

  1. The development of a learning community that challenges our usual assumptions and inspires new thinking about the underlying causes of global problems.
  2. Tools and experiences for participants to uncover their potential through teamwork, inner reflection, physical activity, discussion, drama, writing, art and music.
  3. Sessions that help participants identify their guiding principles in order to gain a sense of purpose and life direction.
  4. An opportunity to develop an international network of people who wish to make a positive difference in the world.
  5. An emphasis on active global citizenship and the role of international organizations such as the United Nations.

We believe that every person has the potential for leadership.

Leadership is an expression of our willingness to engage in the issues and challenges we see around us. It is about finding creative solutions to local and global problems. It is about recognising our own potential and harnessing these qualities for the benefit of ourselves and others.
