Transformative Leadership in Indigenous Communities




This work is being continued through The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT.

A project in partnership with Nia Tero that focuses on transference of indigenous leadership values and skills to groom the next generation of leaders in the respective communities. The first cohort included members of communities from Rarotonga, Cook Islands; Federation of Micronesia, Polynesia; Lake region, North Canada; and Surinam, Guayana. These future leaders will lend their voice on issues ranging from conservation to climate change—issues that directly and severely impact these communities.
