We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine

We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. As the Collective Leadership Institute, we condemn in the strongest possible terms the war in Ukraine. Humanity is facing major global challenges of climate change, socio-economic inequities, and democratic governance. These challenges must be addressed through partnership – across borders, sectors, levels, social groups, and generations. It takes all of us to preserve the community of life and to create a vibrant, equitable, and regenerative world for present and future generations. We therefore call on all decision-makers, politicians, managers, activists, and citizens globally to take all - absolutely all - non-military measures to stop the war in Ukraine.

    The future of leadership is collective
    Learn more

    The Collective Leadership Institute (CLI) is building a global movement that positively impacts multi-stakeholder sustainability initiatives, improves governance, enhances democracy, invigorates education, shifts companies to be of service for the future of humankind, and creates a new paradigm where leadership is seen as the capacity of a collective to catalyze positive change for the common good.

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
