UPG Sustainability Leadership Program 2021
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. It is accurate to think of UPG Sustainability Leadership as a state of mind.
Bringing together people taking positive actions
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.
For those who are familiar with it, UPG uses the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guide
Every individual and organisation can play a positive role
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.
In 2019 UPG successfully trained 60 UPG Sustainability Leaders from 30 countries around the world. They have gone on to train over 4,000 people (and counting) and to implement projects within their communities.
UPG Sustainability Leadership is FREE for young people thanks to the wonderful support of the Partners who believe in positive citizen leadership on sustainability.
