" A leader is someone who has the constant courage to act upon what he or she knows to be truth. " Mac Macartney ~
SEN Ambassador and Elder Mac Macartney shares his message and call to action to young people all around the world to take up their role in the global transition we are undergoing to ensure a future we are capable of.
Mac is an international speaker, writer and change-maker, championing a new story of sustainability. He is also the founder of Embercombe, a social enterprise with a mission to catalyse the emergence of leaders and change-makers for a just, peaceful and sustainable future.
We have been priviledged to learn from and work closely with Mac Macartney as a leadership educator and mutual mentor for our generation. Co-founder Seren Dalkiran developed our SEN Leadership of Values (LoV) Training and Mac Macartney supported us in its translation in a training format.
Together with Mac we piloted and prototyped our leadership training during the SENSummit, the SEN Leadership Training in Istanbul and Devon. We are thankful for this important message that he shared with us in Embercombe in Devon.
Mac is mentored by indigenous people over many years, he has acquired profound and original insights into questions preoccupying many contemporary leaders.
"Mac brings two worlds together – an ancient world-view that emphasises relationship, interdependence and reverence for life with the significant challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. "
Mac challenges us in what it means to be a leader in the 21st century. He seeks to inspire the emergence of the leader in each of us, the leader who will take courageous action for a better world. Championing A New Story of Sustainability lies at the heart of this.
