Leadership Training for Multipliers

We started 2023 with an exciting leadership training for multipliers! We are truly honoured to have worked with an amazing group of 15 circular economy changemakers from Argentina, Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Nepal, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Georgia, Greece, UK, Austria and Germany. The training took place at Circular Valley in Wuppertal, Germany.


With the PREVENT Waste Alliance Leadership Training for Multipliers, circular economy change agents engage in cutting-edge leadership learning to develop individual and collective leadership skills to make a difference for the circular economy, to jointly find solutions, and to act as multipliers for effective leadership within their spheres of influence. The training focuses on four dimensions of transitional change: Team, Organisation, Society and Self. It includes “simple habits for complex times”, easy-to-use practices and tools for everyday formal and informal leadership work.The course helped 15 selected change makers from the PREVENT Waste Alliance to

  • Re-direct their attention to see the larger system: Understanding systemic connections, embracing uncertainty, and providing orientation.
  • Take care of themselves: Practicing mindful leadership, applying self-reflection, focusing attention, and using personal resources wisely and efficiently.
  • Encourage reflection and fresh thinking: Supporting courageous acting and learning, being highly culturally sensitive, and facilitating a new culture of co-creation based on participation and dialogue.
  • Embrace sustainable values: Walking the talk of sustainability, compassion, and fairness in their daily life.

We will offer another leadership training for PREVENT members in September 2023.
