Deadline: 30th November 2020 | Age 18-35 | United People Global 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. If this could be you or someone that you know, then take action and apply now!

UPG Sustainability Leadership is FREE for young people thanks to the wonderful support of our Partners who believe in positive citizen leadership on sustainability.

What they are looking for:
They are building a diverse group of people who want to take positive action that helps the world tackle the  sustainability challenge. UPG agrees that sustainability includes BOTH the usual “green” issues such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, protecting the oceans AND 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. For those who are familiar with it, UPG uses the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guide.

Diversity among UPG Sustainability Leaders:
– are passionate in a specific area (e.g. jobs or education or oceans), there is no need to be passionate in all areas.
– have already taken action related to sustainability AND people who have NEVER taken action
– from all world regions
– aged 18 to 35
– of different levels of education
– have a strong motivation to to be UPG Sustainability Leaders
– are willing and able to take action on sustainability
– believe in UPG’s mission to empower people to make the world a better place through positive action.

B. Motivation – why do you want to be a UPG Sustainability Leader?
C. Capability – how capable are you to do what you want to do?
