Conservation is a story of passionate and committed people able to flourish and deliver.

 

Today’s rapid environmental and societal change demands flexibility, adaptability and unconventional thinking – and a new approach to leadership.

 

We are committed to nurturing young talent, entrepreneurial leadership and innovation capable of delivering transformational conservation.

MAVA LEADERS FOR NATURE ACADEMY

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.

The MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy is a leadership development programme for professionals from partner organizations of the MAVA. It brings together two generations of leaders – senior and young professionals for exploring and teaching the concept of Leading Beyond Authority, Mentoring and Innovation for effective leadership

INNOVATION

Today, effective conservation relies on integrated solutions that cover health, development and social justice as well as environment.

Working with existing initiatives that support social enterprise in our focal regions, we are investing in innovation by leaders that reconciles environmental, social and economic objectives. We are also investing to strengthen innovation within the conservation sector by supporting individuals to learn and apply the entrepreneurial approach.
