SLE Career Journey Advice Series
SLE Career Journey Advice Series were developed within the Sustainable Lifestyles and Education Programme, which aims to foster the uptake of sustainable lifestyles as the common norm.
The SLE programme is co-led by the Ministry of Environment of Japan and the Government of Sweden, represented by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) respectively. Through a global network of experts, practitioners and learners the SLE programme develops tools and resources that allow policy makers, businesses and civil society to build sustainable systems of living.
A Multistakeholder Advisory Committee and large network of partners on the ground are working on the concrete implementation of projects. This includes Akatu (Brazil), Swechha (India), IKEA (Sweden), World Business Council on Sustainable Development, OneEarth (Canada), WRAP (UK), Centre for Collaborative Learning for Sustainable Development (CCL), UNESCO, OECD, UN Environment, Swedish EPA and many others.
Through monthly interview sessions with guest speakers from partner organizations, the programme provided young professionals with a better overview of how leaders strive to amplify ideas and action on sustainable lifestyles and education globally.
A total of 8 episodes showcasing the interview sessions were recorded and are available to watch on Youtube:
1) Ep.1 Claire Kneller - Executive Director at WRAP
2) Ep.2 Markus Terho - Project Director at Sitra
3) Ep.3 Vimlendu Jha - Executive Director at Swechha

6) Ep.6 Laura Hunter - Executive Director at Futerra
7) Ep.7 Marcus Carson - Project Leader at Stockholm Environment Institute
8) Ep.8 Denise Conselheiro - Education Manager at Instituto Akatu

The second part of the sessions consisted of an exchange among participants, allowing questions from attendees and learning about sustainable lifestyles from guest speakers.
