Sustainability needs to be culturally-ground, and socially impactful. We have harvested the low hanging fruit of sustainability – in corporation, governments and public agencies (including cities) and communities. To address Climate, build a Circular Economy, and truly address mega-challenges such as oceans plastics, deforestation and species destruction, and others, requires now models of leadership – personal and societal. And, this comes with an overlay of urgency, and the imperative of innovation. My stage-setting remarks, and the ensuing dialogue, will explore collaboratively how leadership, in its many multi-faceted force, drives change: and we must strive to be better leaders.
