New cohort recruited for second edition of the MAVA Leaders for Nature AcademyMarch 11, 2019
MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy is a leadership development programme for professionals from MAVA partner organisations. It aims to develop leaders who can bring about positive change both within and across partner organisations to increase their sustainability and impact, and brings together two generations of leaders – senior and young professionals. The Academy is run by Common Purpose and Mowgli Mentoring, both experts in their respective fields, leadership development and mentoring.
After the success of the first edition of the MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy, a new cohort has just been recruited for a second edition. This will be a francophone edition with 30 participants from partner organisations* from MAVA’s focus areas: the Mediterranean Basin, West Africa and Switzerland, as well as from our Sustainable Economy programme.
Building a strong conservation community has always been core to MAVA’s approach. Leaders that can carry on and multiply efficient and innovative initiatives, long after MAVA’s closing, are a key component of this community.
MAVA is looking forward to welcoming and starting to work with this francophone cohort during the first face-to-face event focusing on “Leading beyond Authority”, mentoring training & matching that will take place in Morocco (Casablanca & Rabat) from 8 to 11 April 2019.
