It is a great pleasure to invite you to join us for the 10th General Assembly in Melbourne, Australia, 28th February - 4th March 2011 themed: Globally Responsible Leadership for Sustainability and Climate Change. Our partnership of action and learning continues to be a driving force for the development of a next generation of globally responsible leaders. We are now a community of nearly 70 companies and learning organisations and our numbers continue to grow as we seek out and act on lever points, which unlock systemic change.
