Launched in July 2009, Global Green Business Week for Young Leaders is a one week summer institute for talented high school students that addresses the fundamentals and current trends of sustainability and management from a triple bottom line perspective of people, profit and planet - one of the five thematic areas of the UCLA CIBER grant.
The course is taught by UCLA professors, researchers, doctoral and graduate students, as well as practicing executives who provide insight on the societal and economic factors that drive and define green business through a blend of classroom lectures, case studies, experiential exercises and panel discussions. Perspectives from management, urban planning, public policy and environmental sciences will be incorporated into the curriculum. Each facet of the program is designed to challenge students to use innovation and critical reasoning to think about business in the 21st century.
