CSL To Shut Its Doors
Thursday, 5th July 2018 at 8:38 am

The Centre for Sustainability Leadership is looking for a values-aligned organisation to take on the program, after it announced it must close its doors in November after 13 years of running leadership programs.

In an open letter to the CSL community, the not for profit, which has run more than 30 programs in Australia and has close to 700 alumni spread over the world, revealed it was no longer financially sustainable, and had made “the very difficult decision to close”.

“Since the Centre for Sustainability Leadership started, the world has changed dramatically. We’ve experienced increased competition from other programs, and our philanthropic funding has dried up,” the team said.

“Running a not-for-profit is never plain sailing. Despite years and years of tremendous work to keep the ship afloat, we have decided this structure no longer serves its purpose.”

The organisation, which started in 2005 with the Future Sustainability Leadership Program – now the Future Makers Fellowship, will formally wind up once the three current programs have wrapped up in November.

But in a last ditch attempt to ensure the program can go on, CSL is offering an Expression of Interest (EOI) for a group or organisation to pick up the brand, intellectual property, database and delivery team to run the fellowship program in the future.

“The work we’ve been doing is dear to all our hearts and as needed as ever. We want to ensure its profound and meaningful impact can go on,” the team said.

“We’re doing this to make sure the program will go on if it can – and to ensure it lands in the right hands if it does.”

Anyone interested should contact Kim Shore at projects@csl.org.au by 6pm on Friday.
