Creative Climate Leadership USA Launches

We are excited to announce that applications are now open for Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative Climate Leadership Training and Transformation Program (CCL) to be held March 8-14, 2020 at Biosphere 2 in Arizona – the first time CCL has been held in the US.

CCL USA is open to all arts and cultural professionals currently living and working in the US.

Running since 2017 in sites across UK and Europe, our CCL programme provides a week-long intensive residential program of leadership development, learning, and peer-to-peer knowledge exchange delivered through talks, workshops, guest speakers, group and peer-led activity, and new tools, based on 12 years of research and development. Watch some previous applicants speak about their experience in the Slovenia 2017 course, here.

CCL USA is facilitated by Julie’s Bicycle and delivered in partnership with EcoArts Connections, The University of Arizona and The Colorado European Union Center of Excellence.

Topics include: historical, scientific and political drivers of climate change; the role of cultural leadership within the global environmental and climate justice movements; leadership for climate action, including personal development and movement building; strategies for managing change, communicating climate change, and empowering action; systems theory and design thinking; interdisciplinary collaboration, and more.

CCL mentorship helps participants develop or expand and improve a self-initiated “legacy project” which applies participant leadership to real-world contexts, including commissions, campaigns, organizational change, and strategy and policy development, among other activities and events.

Deadline for applications is midnight East Standard Time on the 9th January 2020.
