About the Program

Knowledge experts and content advisors will offer a curated set of learning modules both on-line and on-site. This unique Climate leadership program case references site specific action, where policy interventions and appropriate technologies are being applied.

CLIC encourages fostering environmental leadership from underserved communities and the developing world with thoughtful sustainable action on key emerging topics that will shape our collective future. It will convene regional and global forums and serve as a dynamic exchange platform for leaders across the globe to engage with peers and subject matter experts on key strategic issues related to energy, environment, food, health, disaster resilience, security, prosperity, data management, Ai, carbon sequestration, blue-green financing, pollution, innovation, policy, literacy and governance.

Through strategic foresight and macro-level analysis as a common denominator of environmental stewardship, leaders will learn practical, innovative courses of action for change aligned with UN SDG.
