The Leadership For Sustainability Learning Network

Follow us on Twitter

This interactive, web-based network (LSLN), currently being developed by Lancaster University Management School, is designed to promote and facilitate learning and aims to become the place to meet and learn for advancing environmental, social and economic sustainability in the North West and beyond. 

Participants will be able to engage with many other individuals, organisations and communities who care about, and are working for, a sustainable future. Up-to-date web tools will be used to help form links, relationships and alliances with others seeking to make things happen. The network will develop in collaboration with participants to ensure it meets their needs during the programme and into the future.
