OUR PROGRAMS

Leading Change Forum and Capital events are creating action on the road to net zero.

Background

Leading Change is a national not-for-profit organization supporting Canadians between the ages of 19-35. Our mission is to activate and accelerate young professional leadership for positive environmental, social, and economic impact. Leading Change is part of a constellation of sustainability-focused organizations that includes The Delphi GroupGLOBE Series, and CBSR. We share a common vision: to achieve a sustainable, prosperous, and socially just future in a generation.   

Leading Change Forum is a biennial youth and young professional summit integrated with GLOBE Forum, where global leaders from business, government, and civil society come together to manage risk and take action on solutions in the clean economy. The goal of the event is for participants to feel confident, prepared, and supported to take action – whether that’s planning and implementing sustainability projects in their community, driving partnerships for greater impact, starting or scaling entrepreneurial programs at work, or making presentations to local government.

What is LEADINGxCHANGE?

In the past, we hosted Leading Change Capital 2019 in Toronto and Leading Change Capital 2021 online as interactive opportunities to bridge vital connections between areas of investment, infrastructure, and innovation on the road to a cleaner and more equitable economy  

Returning to in-person programming in Toronto for 2023, LEADINGxCHANGE  will be held in conjunction with GLOBExCHANGE (Feb. 27 – Mar. 1) to accelerate the exchange of solutions, skillsets, and dollars that will take us farther and faster on the road to net zero.

Our program focuses on the connections, exchanges and collaboration required by businesses, governments, and civil society to advance concrete action in the priority areas identified in the 10x10 Matrix, aka the 10 action areas we need to prioritize in the next 10 years to achieve net zero by 2050: 

  • Mobilizing & Deploying Capital 
  • Unlocking Innovation
