The Sustainability Leaders Network

Congratulations to Edie Farwell and Dominic Stucker of the Sustainability Leaders Network (SLN) for carrying on the leadership trainings and sustainability work they started through the Donella Meadows Leadership Fellows Program! The SLN continues to connect and engage with each of DMI’s 74 Fellows to deepen their impact as they address today’s most pressing environmental and social challenges.

In addition to strengthening the Fellows network, the SLN offers a variety of leadership trainings, guided visioning exercises, and sustainability coaching programs. These programs aim to build capacity and accelerate the spread and adoption of sustainable solutions by teaching leadership practices such as visioning, systems thinking, reflective conversation, and creative expression. Each of these approaches is inspired by and aligned with the teachings of Donella Meadows and other pioneers in systems thinking and sustainability, and we here at DMI are so pleased that the SLN is sharing and promoting these valuable tools.

To take advantage of the SLN’s expertise in leadership training, we encourage you to visit their website and explore the many resources, programs, and services they offer. Of particular interest are the entries in the SLN blog, which profile the Fellows and highlight work in systems thinking, and the Fellows Videos, which explore many of the sustainability issues and initiatives the Fellows are currently pursuing. We hope these resources inspire you to learn about systems thinking and engage with the global network of sustainability innovators!
