An introduction to research at the University of Cumbria’s Institute for Leadership and Sustainability (IFLAS) http://www.cumbria.ac.uk/iflas/
Our three main research areas generate knowledge to enable transitions to fair and sustainable societies. These include:
• Leading transition – how professionals can better lead their organisations, sectors or communities towards sustainability and social justice, and how such leadership can be enabled.
• Resourcing transition – how professionals, including entrepreneurs and community leaders, can employ novel ways to resource their activities to enable the transition to sustainability, social justice and prosperity, as well as the implications for governments, foundations and other stakeholders.
• Scaling transition – how professionals develop, deploy or assess strategies for transforming difficult public problems.
