Program Objectives

GPSS-GLI provides the training necessary that enables future global leaders to make a profound impact on sustainability science and sustainable development. As a collaborative effort between the United Nations University (UNU) and the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, GPSS-GLI combines the educational resources and international research networks of leading academic institutions and thereby provides students with the training and opportunities necessary to become global leaders. Through intensely specialized studies and general education as well as international and practical experience, students can (i) develop the skills necessary for global leadership, (ii) acquire a broad perspective and problem solving capabilities, and (iii) learn to apply the concept of "resilience" both theoretically and practically.
