MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy is a leadership development programme for professionals from partner organizations of the MAVA, Fondation pour la Nature. It brings together two generations of leaders – senior and young professionals.
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 Academy aims to develop leaders who can bring about positive change both within and across partner organizations to increase their sustainability and impact.
Launched online, participants will experience the power of working together in person, as well as continuing the learning online and remaining connected throughout the Academy year. Starting in 2018, the Academy will run each year until 2022, up to the foundation’s closure.
On April 03, 2018 The foundation launched the MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy, a leadership programme for both senior and young professionals specifically designed for MAVA partners. It will be run by Common Purpose and Mowgli Mentoring, who we have chosen to work with because they are recognised and applauded experts in their respective fields.
Common Purpose runs leadership development programmes that inspire and equip people to work across boundaries, enabling them to solve complex problems in organisations and in society. Working with Mowgli Mentoring, Common Purpose has designed a programme that combines leadership development with mentoring to facilitate inter-generational exchange.
MAVA Leaders for Nature Academy is intended for all MAVA direct and sub-contracting partners, meaning any organisation that receives directly or via sub-contracting funds from MAVA to implement their work. In case of international organisations, priority will be given to offices / teams in our focused areas.
