Dear colleagues,

The pandemic has forced us to adapt to a new way of life, but we cannot let travel restrictions stop us from working together to solve the world’s pressing problems.

In this time of unprecedented challenges and uncertain futures, the need to creatively adapt is critical. We recognize this need, which is why we are excited to offer your students a No Passport Needed 2020 Global Leadership Challenge.

Participants will be grouped with other students from around the globe and tasked with helping to develop solutions to pressing environmental challenges that have not stopped because of the pandemic.

This remote program will provide students with an unprecedented opportunity to develop leadership skills, engage in cross-cultural exchange with top students from multiple countries, and design solutions to environmental challenges alongside faculty experts and professional practitioners all without leaving home.

Please see the complete program details below and use the attached flyer for promotional purposes.

We hope to include your students in this innovative remote experience as we learn to adapt and rise to new challenges, together.
