UPG is inviting young leaders all over the world to the Sustainability Leadership Program. UPG Sustainability Leadership mobilises people and organisations to support positive citizen leadership on sustainability. UPG Sustainability Leadership is about positive citizen leadership on sustainability. It is a movement that encourages and enables citizens at all levels to take positive action.

About the Program:-

  • This program began in 2019 with 60 people from around the world trained as Sustainability Leaders. Flights, accommodation and training costs were all covered. These 60 Leaders committed to two objectives within the communities that they inhabit:

    • Lead personal projects of their own choice.

    • Deliver training sessions to other Sustainability Leaders.

  • For 2021 UPG is training and certifying 500 young leaders from all over the world and flying 60 of them to a free, complementary and immersive 1-week experience on an island in the USA: the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership.

  • The syllabus includes training in project management, stakeholder engagement, communication, digital communications, and much more. Sustainability Leaders also explore how sustainability is related to economics, politics, law, culture, technology, education, and more.

Eligibility and Requirements:-

  • You should demonstrate a strong motivation to become UPG Sustainability Leader combined with strong capabilities and you also have initial ideas that can have impact.
  • Your age is minimum 18 years or maximum 35 years by 1 October 2021.

Benefits:-

  • After completing the online training, all UPG Sustainability Leaders will receive a certification, and 60 of them will have the chance to attend a complementary 1-week training at Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership, in the USA, in summer 2021.
  • In addition, upon the conclusion of these trainings, UPG Sustainability Leaders conduct a secondary wave of mini-training sessions within their communities, contributing to a ground swell of informed citizens taking positive action and demonstrating sustainability leadership.

Selection Criteria:-

  • UPG is looking for young determined people from all different paths of life and regions of the world. From well-experienced professionals to freshly graduated students.

About UPG:-

United People Global (UPG) is a non-profit organisation registered as a foundation in Switzerland.  UPG Sustainability Leadership is about positive citizen leadership on sustainability. It is a movement that encourages and enables citizens at all levels to take positive action. A movement inspired by the UPG’s commitment to do what we can with what we have, rather than wait for someone else to act. UPG believes that sustainability includes BOTH the usual “green” issues such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, protecting the oceans AND that it also includes other issues that have been central to our societies for a long time such as: education, health, jobs, gender equality, sustainable consumption, sustainable production and more.
