  • Enhance capabilities to effectively perform relevant tasks.
  • Encourage cooperation and the development of multi-stakeholder partnerships

At CIFAL Flanders, every Action Learning for Sustainability Leadership begins with:

  • A period of strategic questioning of the problem.
  • Action items and goals.
  • Analyzing and reflection
