The Inaugural LEIF 2009 event is an exclusive, intimate event that will convene professionals and thought-leaders from a multitude of backgrounds, industries, interests, and countries to work together to define and launch the universal standard for sustainable, integrative and evolutionary development. Register before September 30th to avoid paying the higher registration fee—only two days remaining before the registration deadline.
By assembling select members from the international sustainable business community, LEIF’s mission is to create the LEIF Alliance of partner agencies, companies and organizations that will be at the forefront of the sustainable and integrative development movement, and to generate appropriate language that will allow the LEIF Alliance to promote awareness about the importance of a sustainable future that includes integrative and whole systems thinking.
