Why establish a Leadership hub?
African conservation needs leaders who can navigate the increasing complexities the world faces, from competing development agendas, to climate change.
The hub promotes this leadership model to African clients and international funding organisations’, to secure funding for the initiative. We then manage and coordinate the implementation of programmes with the hub providing the central coordination capacity to ensure the ongoing interests of the partners.
Our goal is to build leaders in the conservation sector of Africa who:
- are able to be ‘present’, connected emotionally, and have the courage to lead beyond authority;
- are engaged at all levels in decision-making to collectively solve issues and be able to lead complex change;
- address issues using innovative, ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, drawing on intergenerational inputs, to address conservation challenges in collaboration with communities; and
- are able to work across the boundaries of discipline and sector, with diverse stakeholders, elevating conservation as a key economic driver.
