Foresight NEXT is a unique program that combines interactive seminars and dynamic speakers with engaging site visits. This program is designed to help professionals integrate sustainability into their companies’ operations. This approach delivers the judgment, economics, strategies and communication necessary to affect positive change.
NEXT fellows acquire new approaches and best practices to become more astute problem solvers.
Created in collaboration with the foremost corporate sustainability executives, NEXT integrates experiential and academic learning modes. The program meets monthly for one evening and consecutive day, accommodating out-of-town participation.
NEXT is designed for professionals from all backgrounds who are looking to intersect their careers with sustainability, or those who are from various departments but need to be up to speed to work alongside sustainability departments.
Their current cohort consists of participants from McDonald’s, Siemens, Shaw, and AonHewitt among others. To read their bios, learn more about the hands-on curriculum, and download a brochure, go to their website here.
A phone information session will be held on July 9, at 6 pm, to RSVP click here.
The deadline to apply for the second Foresight NEXT term (September 2012 – February 2013) is July 11.
