The Training Better Leaders course accounts for the three pillars of sustainability - environmental, social and financial. It aims to improve sustainability literacy and skills for young professionals and to equip them with the tools they need going forward into global leadership roles.

Students who attend this workshop will receive a Sustainability Skills Certificate from ECI and have the opportunity to meet sustainability professionals from various organizations. Students who register must attend the full workshop in order to qualify for the certificate.

This year the workshop will take place on 16-18 April 2018.
