This subject provides the rationale for why a business, agency or Non Government Organisation (NGO) needs to address sustainability and how the innovative ones are exploring what this can mean. It establishes a process for students to engage in taking their own leadership aspirations to a new level and to develop their own potential as leaders in sustainability. Students will be given the opportunity to engage with a range of respected sustainability leaders who will share their wealth of experience through reflective discussions about their personal sustainability journeys, as well as exposing the students to contemporary information on the topic.
