For this purpose, we lined up a great group of more than 30 experts from all different fields. There are business scholars from strategy, finance, HR, leadership, and innovation. You will enjoy the contributions of climate change scientists, technology and health experts, neuroscientists, large system change activists, and thought leaders 

from the corporate world who will join us for content contributions or interviews. The program is based on the latest research results which will be presented to you in videos, research papers, and reports also based, for instance, on the golden digital database, which is currently expanded and refined with machine learning technology at the Leonardo Centre at the Imperial College. 

Every module will challenge you to bring new tasks to the table, to read and go through case studies in which you can prove your knowledge and your creativity. The red thread through all twelve modules is our capstone project in which you will keep on moving and expanding through all the twelve core modules and hopefully come up with a roadmap at the end, and even with a pitch to a leader in your organization to organize a change initiative in your own company. Additionally, we prepared an alternative parallel learning journey for you which is based on deep introspection and meditation. 

This stream of content is based on neuroscience research projects showing the very interesting results that meditation can stimulate your brain in a way that improves your social and environmental consciousness without even including information on sustainability. In our live sessions, you will have the opportunity to engage with your fellow course participants and with lecturers directly online to engage in discussions. 

In addition to this core program, we'll offer you specialization programs. They are five modules long and will provide you with deeper insights into several environmental and societal challenges. 

All in all, we are convinced that this comprehensive core course of twelve modules provides deep insights, applied practical skills, and knowledge enabling you to become a transformational leader in your own organization and in your own environment. We hope you enjoy it.
