The Global School for Social Leaders

World-Class & Executive Education for public and private sector leaders.

Since 2010, Vienna, Austria & Berlin, Germany

 Who are we? 

We are a multi-awarded NGO based in Vienna, Austria specialising in global education & consulting for leaders in the public and private sector.

We focus on three main themes: Sustainable Development, Social Innovation and Leadership.

Our community of members, alumni, allies, and consultants comprehends leaders of governments, companies and NGOs whose join our programs with a mission to access world-class tools, knowledge, resources, network and partnerships.

Our programs, such as workshops, conferences, awards and business trips, have been recognized by the United Nations Regional Academy, awarded by the Government of Austria, and received hundreds of positive ratings.

The Global School for Social Leaders is an independent, self-funded, non-governmental organization not aligned with any political agenda or ideology.


 Why We do it? 


A social leader NO longer means founding an NGO or engaging in activism. A social leader is also an entrepreneur, a company or a government that creates well-being and wealth for their community and environment.

Sustainable Development has proven to be a force that has mobilised all sectors, public and private, to address the most transcendental challenges facing humanity, such as climate change, inequality and the threat of nuclear conflict.

Sustainable development and social innovation are the best paths to guarantee a prosperous and liveable future. Furthermore, they are also a new economy valued at 13 trillion dollars (USD) in the next 15 years.


Every year since 2010, we receive leaders from around the world in Central Europe who join our high-level educational programs, equipping them with the most powerful tools, knowledge, resources and global partnerships.

Leaders who share a holistic view of our planet. Leaders committed to a cause, who dare to challenge the status quo and are capable of executing innovative solutions to complex problems.


 How do we do it?
