Manager, Leading Change

Young leaders are up for the massive opportunities and great challenges in sustainable innovation. They need tangible platforms to validate their ideas, structures and resources to hold them accountable, and direct communication to acknowledge their efforts. The Academy for Sustainable Innovation will fuel them onwards and upwards!

Most of today's jobs and learned skills will be obsolete in tomorrow's rapidly changing economy. I am confident the wisdom of the Academy for Sustainable Innovation's leadership can help re-boot Canada's workforce so that we lead rather than follow this change.

Our Mission

  1. Recognizing the urgency of achieving an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050 — and the opportunities this creates for scaling innovation, acting as an advocate for our movement, and its future impact.

  2. Supporting the development of a profession of managers and entrepreneurs committed to transition. We are aiming to qualify and accredit a minimum of 100,000 transition managers within 15 years.

  3. Supporting the development of role models and mentoring capacity at all levels – including ‘reverse mentoring’ – and providing for digital matchmaking of those joining the movement.

  4. Creating new educational pathways of accessible and flexible learning in transition-related topics by sharing existing educational opportunities.

  5. Developing new educational opportunities that transcend disciplinary and institutional barriers and leverage new course formats, online and open access resources, conferences, and co-labs.
