11.11.2021

Are you a current or future leader who works within business, academia or the public sector? Then you should join the One Ocean Expedition Sustainable Leadership – a truly unique leadership course in sustainable leadership directed by Western Norway University of Applied Sciences.

The One Ocean Expedition´s goal is to create attention and share knowledge about the crucial role of the ocean for a sustainable development in a global perspective. In this course you will gain knowledge and understanding of how to become a change maker for a sustainable development.  To understand your role as a leader in a world that is rapidly changing is crucial in the transition to a sustainable society. ​

This is a once in a lifetime experience and opportunity, where you work together with leaders from different backgrounds. You will together experience challenges as they come, operate one of the largest and most sustainable sailing ships in the world and have a unique nature experience between Japan and China.

The course highlights how organizations can strengthen all elements of «the triple bottom line»: People, profit, planet. In addition each participant is challenged to develop their leadership skills, and their identity as leaders. Further more, the course draws on current theories, and provides theoretical knowledge about sustainable leadership. Students will participate in peer discussions and practical exercises in order to explore the sustainable leadership concept.

There are only 100 open spots. Imagine sailing with 100 leaders from different organizations from all around the world – networking, educating, sailing together and maybe working on new ideas together?

In addition, you are invited to an exclusive conference in Shanghai, after embarking, with world famous keynote speakers, moderators and debates about relevant topics such as collaboration between countries, trade and sustainability. ​Here you will also meet and get to know the top executives that will sail on the next leg: One Ocean Expedition Top Executive. This is free of charge for all participants of this course.
