An initiative dedicated to assembling global thought leaders to find sustainable solutions to the major challenges plaguing our world today

About The Responsible Leaders Summit 


The Centre for Responsible Leadership is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to assembling global thought leaders to find concrete solutions to the major challenges plaguing our world today.

We seek to foster a new atmosphere for finding solutions at the United Nations annually, while also hosting additional events throughout North America and Europe. 

Are you a responsible leader?

Are your decisions:

Based on the future or the present?

Made out of conviction or convenience?

Constructive or destructive?


Responsible leaders make decisions in the best interests of the future and not only the present, injecting the question of sustainability into all that they do. 


Responsible leaders need to act with conviction and not out of convenience. In a complex and overly politicized world, leaders must be able to make the right decision, even if it is the difficult one.


Real responsible leadership is constructive not destructive, elevating the surrounding people, places and communities. It is our goal to build a new world without destroying the old.
