TRAIL - The Rizal Academy for Innovation and Leadership

About Us

TRAIL is an educational initiative from leaders of Business, Civil Society and Government intended to offer executive training programs and technical support for change agents and innovative leaders, wishing to continue Rizal’s work for structural reforms which he started in Dapitan. Like Rizal, students enrolled in TRAIL will think up creative solutions to address the root causes for the current economic, ecological, social and spiritual crises facing the world today.

TRAIL is the local partner of the Presencing Institute, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, a global awareness-based action research university for profound societal innovation and change.


Vision-Mission

Last June 19, 2011, the country commemorated the 150th birthday of our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal. Although much has been written about his life, not much attention has been given to Dr. Rizal as a visionary and a man ahead of his time, a global learner who applied his learnings locally for the benefit of his country, and a systems thinker who saw the world as an emerging whole, with interdependent parts. We still have much to learn from this exemplary Filipino.

Thus, as a fitting tribute to Dr. Rizal, the visionary leader, the seeds of The Rizal Academy for Innovation and Leadership (TRAIL) were planted in Philippine soil on the sesquicentennial anniversary of his birth.
