New Master's Programs Will Train Sustainable Development Leaders

New Master’s Programs Will Train Sustainable Development Leaders
The first global initiative to provide rigorous professional training for future leaders in the field of sustainable development was unveiled Friday at Columbia University. The program, which was recommended in a newly released report by the International Commission on Education for Sustainable Development Practice, sets a new standard for other universities hoping to design their own Master’s degrees along this model. At the event, Jonathan Fanton announced that MacArthur is committing $15 million to seed the creation of such Master’s in Development Practice programs at up to 12 universities worldwide over the next three years. For more information read the press release, the Commission's report, and Jonathan Fanton's remarks.
