Spring is a global capacity accelerator for social and climate justice leaders.

 

Our purpose is to support change leaders around the world in accelerating their individual and collective capacities to realize ambitious goals to solve systemic problems. 

We partner with people and organizations to develop ways of thriving in complexity, gaining fresh perspectives and forging powerful new pathways for change. 

Our programs are purpose-driven future-ready. We support our partners to apply what they learn to their unique mission and respond to emerging challenges and opportunities with smart risk-taking and bold, creative new moves. Our program areas focus on leadership coaching, financial resilience and facilitation and collaboration.
