The Humanitarian Leadership Academy is a global learning initiative set up to facilitate partnerships and collaborative opportunities to enable people to prepare for and respond to crises in their own countries.

Academy director Atish Gonsalves was at Learning Live this year to promote his organisation's mission and the role of learning as a tool for social impact.

Atish's session at Learning Live discussed why accessible learning is going to be a game changer for reskilling global workforces, averting natural disasters, preventing social unrest and engaging local communities. 

Shortly afterwards Learning News caught up with Atish Gonsalves to find out more about his big ideas. The interview took place at Learning Live 2018 in London.
