LEAD has both individual and institutional members. Individual members are
called LEAD Fellows. They have all completed a training programme in leadership for
sustainable development. The program emphasizes: enhancing leadership skills; building
knowledge of sustainable development challenges and exploring possible solutions;
developing a set of shared ethics and values; supporting collaboration and peer learning.
Today, there are more than 1400 LEAD Fellows from the worlds of business,
media, public sector, universities and non-governmental organizations in over 80
countries. They communicate continually, meet periodically, embark on joint projects,
publish research, undertake professional exchanges, take part in international
negotiations and support each other in sustainable development.
Through LEAD, they are members of an influential network of peers. LEAD
Fellows today are mayors, members of parliaments, heads of corporations, leaders of
non-governmental organizations, ministers, newspaper editors and TV producers, scientists
and global citizens.
LEADís institutional members include affiliated non-governmental
organizations in Brazil, Canada, China, the Commonwealth of Independent States,
Francophone Africa, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Southern Africa,
the UK and the US.
These LEAD Member Programs share LEADís mission. They are well
established in their countries and have expertise in capacity development, project
management, research, networking support, communications, and providing policy advice.
