In June 2017 the Southeast Asia START Regional Center (SEA-START) organized a training workshop on ‘Building transformational leadership towards the Sustainable Development Goals’, a six-day leadership program aimed at building inter-disciplinary skills to lead sustainable development initiatives. Twenty-one participants from the region (Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Maldives, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) learned about five case studies from Bangkok and the surrounding areas, and had the opportunity to analyze how similar sustainability challenges could be addressed in their organizations and communities. The program focused specifically on collaborative efforts, leveraging networks and involving multiple stakeholders.
The workshop, which is the fifth workshop under the ProSPER.Net Leadership Programme, took place at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. It was jointly organized by the United Nations University’s Institute for Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), Chulalongkorn University: Faculty of Science, the Center of Excellence on Hazardous Substance Management (HSM) and SEA START RC, in cooperation with local communities and experts.
