A Call for New Leaders


The United States of America is experiencing a shrinking middle class and declines in collaboration, trust, and social mobility. 


Global challenges – economic transitions, resource constraints, global instability – intensify these strains and diminish our impacts. 

Nordic countries present an ideal context in which to train essential leaders for the 21st century - in sustainability, innovation, collaboration, transparency and equity.

Evidence Based

NSLI researches best practices in leadership education, entrepreneurship and leadership for sustainability. We conduct academic research and write on the topics of leadership for sustainability and Nordic leadership. NSLI's evidence based findings support our leadership program design.

Partnerships for Best Practices

Working with partner institutions, mentor-leaders, and extraordinary young Americans, the Nordic Scholars program seeks to combine, cultural immersion, systems design and innovation project-based learning to engage and train a network of future U.S. leaders.
