Environmental Leadership training—effects on students’ future environmental leadership

Michael Norton, Yu You Li, Yasumitsu Tanaka

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This book is based on the experience of developing and applying environmental leadership education and training at Tohoku University, where learners are masters and doctorate researchers in sciences, engineering and humanities. This book’s focus is on a range of issues in energy and resources, but is just one part of the wider curriculum outlined in Chap. 1 aiming to strengthen motivation and provide the necessary knowledge and personal skills to support environmental leadership in the student’s future workplace. This final chapter thus assesses how far we have achieved that role based on student feedback, their decisions in selection of future jobs, and limited feedback from their employment after graduating. This is set against a theoretical framework of leadership in sustainable development.
