Research summary

In communities around the world, leaders are emerging to face climate change impacts, cultural homogenization and other challenges related to sustainability and social change. There is much that these leaders can learn from each other—and Dr. Jonathan Langdon, Canada Research Chair in Sustainability and Social Change Leadership, is working to make sure this sharing happens.Langdon and his research team are supporting a trans-local effort that connects and influences different regions or areas at the same time. They are trying to link places that are contending with these challenges through knowledge exchange, mutual sustainability and social change learning. The learning and sharing that emerges from these efforts will enrich Canada’s contributions to a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable world.
