In 2015, the nations of the world agreed to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17th Goal emphasizes the importance of partnerships for realizing the other 16 Goals. Working in collaboration across sectors, topics, and borders requires a set of capacities that most individuals and organizations simply don’t have yet. This begs the question: how will the 17th SDG be met by 2030?
The challenge presented by the SDGs is increasing collaboration capacity worldwide so that all change processes can be carried out in a peaceful, professional, efficient, and effective way that honours the intention of the global sustainable development movement. To meet this challenge, CLI is training collaborative change-makers and building collective leadership academies around the world. CLI’s vision is “A worldwide network of Collective Leadership Academies that scale up collective leadership capacity to empower individuals and organizations to achieve sustainability outcomes.”
