Sustainability: The Role of the Manager

Please note, this course is currently being redesigned for online delivery.

Sustainability – The Role of the Manager

This course is for managers/leaders who are new to sustainability, or have little applied experience of embedding sustainability in practice and feel they would benefit most from gaining a good understanding of sustainability and it’s strategic importance at the University of Leeds.  Participants on this course will:

  • develop a solid understanding of sustainability in the University context and what it means for their management and leadership roles;
  • learn about how to support their teams and colleagues in embedding sustainability
  • explore examples of sustainability in practice across different departments
  • Identify opportunities and barriers
  • develop an action plan for working collaboratively in their own areas.

The course is delivered in two parts. Part 1 covers the fundamentals of sustainability and how it is applied at Leeds, delivered through guided online self-learning, to be completed prior to attending Part 2. Part 2 is a 2.5hr face to face online session, which focuses on what this means for your role as a manager, discussing challenges and opportunities and offering opportunities for collaboration.
