Each team will embark on a five-month programme, optimising the solutions, and implementing into the world through test-and-learn cycles, starting on 01 December 2020.

The focus of each team will be on action and impact.

Each delegate will be supported and trained to transform their personal agency, mindsets, behaviours and capabilities to develop their societal leadership.
