We live in a volatile, uncertain and complex world. With threats such as climate change, social unrest, and resource scarcity, the next generation of leaders must adapt and learn to play new roles.

Universities and colleges are uniquely positioned to build the next generation’s capacity to impact positive change. Supporting students in understanding current social and environmental challenges, and working with them to experiment with innovative tools and approaches is essential to accelerating this new way forward. Fundamental shifts to the post-secondary sector — fostering reciprocal relationships, engaging across institutional boundaries — are paramount to enhancing the wellbeing of the communities we all share.
