Welcome To The 2023-2024 Cross Cultural Leadership Program

WLSA’s Cross-Cultural Leadership Program aims to widen academic horizons, develop global awareness and foster a universal concern. CCLP offers a unique opportunity for students to learn leadership skills and engage in cross-cultural dialogue with other students across the globe. Students will sharpen essential skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and collaborative working. CCLP seeks to engage students in developing connections and acting on issues that they find of importance. All WLSA Associate schools may participate.


This year CCLP will be led by Owen Moelwyn-Hughes, WLSA’s Director of Global Student affairs, who has considerable experience in staging learning events focused on Global Issues and International Relations. The course will focus on 21st Century Global Challenges such as Sustainability; Conflict and Peace; Power and Order, and Governance. Study days and workshops augment lectures from distinguished subject experts and interactive learning experiences focused on negotiation skills, conflict resolution, critical debates and collaborative problem-solving.


Linked to CCLP is the ‘COP Action Weeks’ which coincide with the UN Climate Change Conferences; and they offer a series of learning experiences for students to address the issues around Climate Change. The emphasis is on exposing students to the perspectives and commentaries that inform the position people in different parts of the world adopt. There in an ONLINE Conference which includes a simulated climate change negotiation.


CCLP culminates in a Capstone Conference. Most recently this was part of the 2023 WLSA Global Students Conference in Shanghai with the theme of ‘Navigating the Modern World.’ In July 2022 an on-line global students conference was held with the theme of ‘Building Bridges in a Divided World’.
