12 August 2014
On August 8th 2014, wholeSEM's Principal Investigator Professor Neil Strachan delivered a workshop at the LIFE 2014 conference – Leadership Initiative for Excellence. The workshop 'Climate Change Mitigation and Leadership' aimed to get students to think through the trade-offs, uncertainties and decision making in formulating a long-term international agreement on mitigating climate change. The workshop also explored how leaders balance the long-term risks to the global environment with short-term priorities on jobs, development, and the political realities of individual countries.
Leadership Initiative for Excellence (LIFE), an initiative by The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) creates a platform for students with leadership skills to interact, exchange ideas, and empower them as thinkers and change-makers.
