We work with partners from across the globe to co-create, test and scale effective leadership education approaches and innovative solutions that can advance vibrant, sustainable rural areas.

The challenges facing rural areas are complex and, driven by changes in climate, technology, demographics and global politics, this complexity is increasing at an alarming rate. EARTH believes that strengthening and broadening the ecosystem of actors working together to promote effective leadership for rural sustainability will be critical to achieving change at the scale required to meet the challenge.

Since its inception, EARTH has actively sought collaborations and partnerships to complement its own efforts and to expand impact. The University has strong academic, funding and implementation partnerships with dozens of leading Universities, research centers and foundations in the US, Latin America, Africa and Europe.

EARTH Futures will serve as a new institutional platform to intensify these partnership efforts among like-minded institutions and to build an international movement for effective leadership education. From its home in Costa Rica, EARTH Futures will work closely with existing and new partners from across the globe, including leaders in government, academia, business, NGOs and philanthropy, to co-design shared solutions that can accelerate shared learning and grow collective impact.
