Courage to Lead honors leaders with a global vision who have inspired people and changed institutions and industries to create a better world.

This inspiring event brings together business leaders, philanthropists, civic leaders, and concerned citizens to help raise funds to enable WRI to tackle today's urgent environment and development challenges - climate change, deforestation, water scarcity, and the stress on natural resources from increasing urbanization.
