The Carpe Vitam: Leadership for Learning (LfL) initiative is an international project involving teams from Australia, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Greece, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This initiative specifically focuses on the role of school leadership in creating a stimulating learning environment not only for students, but also for those who support them in their learning at classroom and whole school level as well as in the home and community. Carpe Vitam: LfL ended in December 2005. The Carpe Vitam Capstone Team developed strategic options for the next phase of the initiative by summarizing “lessons learned” from the first phase of this initiative; conducting a needs assessment of complementary research institutions and non-governmental organizations from around the world who might want to join this international community of practice; specifying potential funders and approaches to engaging them; and outlining an international large-scale conference around Leadership for Learning.
