Desmond Tutu

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is recognised globally as a leader. He leads through his actions.

The 1984 Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu discusses what makes a good leader in this YouTube video. He reminds us all of the importance of service and community-based leadership, and how this form of leadership truly makes a difference to the world.

When you start the New Year, a video such as this would be a good way to remind all students of their responsibility to their school community, as well as being a stimulus to get students involved in community programs.




Derek Sivers

How to start a movement

With help from some surprising footage, Derek Sivers explains how movements really get started. (Hint: it takes two.)



Josh Yandt

Opening doors

Leadership is demonstrated through actions. In this video, Josh Yandt a Canadian high school student opens doors for his peers. It changed his life.



Severn Cullis-Suzuki

Leading from aged 9

Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Severn Cullis-Suzuki has been camping and hiking all her life. When she was 9 she started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They were successful in many projects before 1992, when they raised enough money to go to the UN's Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Their aim was to remind the decision-makers of who their actions or inactions would ultimately affect. The goal was reached when 12 yr old Severn closed a Plenary Session with a powerful speech that received a standing ovation.
