When we develop the Mindset we can leap forward to shape a more sustainable world. That is the idea of LEAP!, the Working Group on the Sustainability Mindset part of United Nations PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education). LEAP also summarizes the purpose: Leverage resources, Expand awareness, Accelerate change and Partner, and brings together academics interested in developing a new mindset with their students.
I started this in 2014 with a dozen colleagues, and in 2020 we were +150 scholars from 46 countries. The members are researching the Sustainability Mindset in their context and culture, writing papers, books, chapters and presenting at conferences to share with colleagues what is possible. We estimate that over 20 000 students a year are revisiting their mindset, and connecting head, heart and hands to actively shape a better world.
Are you looking to connect and share with other academics who have the same passion, interests, and vision as you? Are you looking for your tribe?
