South-East Asia and Pacific Regional Fisheries Summit
July 27-28, Jakarta, Indonesia
Fisheries across South-East Asia are in decline. Nearly everywhere, fisheries are either fully exploited or overexploited. The consequences are enormous, damaging ocean ecosystems, livelihoods, food security and broader economic well-being and development. The South-East Asia and Pacific Regional Fisheries Summit, part of The Economist Events’ World Ocean Initiative, will bring together government, industry, the financial sector and scientists for a broad discussion on fisheries reform across South-East Asia and the adjacent Pacific. Working groups from this Fisheries Summit will be encouraged to report their progress at the World Ocean Summit in Bali in February 2017.
ISSP members can attend this event as our VIP guest. To register, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or register your interest online. Visit our website www.fisheries.economist.com for more information.

SoL North America's Foundations for Leadership Program, Facilitated by Peter Senge & Robert Hanig
September 27-29, Ashland, MA
Deepen your capacity to lead effectively in this intensive three-day program, based on the leadership development process described in The Fifth Discipline, by Peter Senge, identified as a seminal management book by Harvard Business Review. Participants in Foundations for Leadership will explore what it takes to create an environment where leadership is a shared responsibility, naturally embedded in the fabric of an organization and community.
Participants will leave with a new set of skills, tools and understanding of how they can facilitate meaningful change, both within their organizations and in their personal lives. The special contribution of this leadership course emerges as participants make the profound connections between personal mastery and systems thinking, seeing that deep change in systems and in oneself are inseparable from each other. This course is intended for everyone committed to deepening their capacity for effective leadership; teams are encouraged to attend to further develop their collective leadership. Learn More.
