#UPGSustainability Leadership mobilises people and organisations to support positive citizen leadership on sustainability. It’s flagship activity is a free programme that trains young leaders to become ambassadors and warriors for a better world. It includes an intensive 9-week training programme, year-long support and a pilgrimage to Hurricane Island in the USA.

For the Class of 2022, UPG Sustainability Leadership is committed to training at least 500 young leaders from 100 countries. The 2022 target is to receive applications from at least 125 countries. With 6 weeks to go, this target has been surpassed with over 3,200 applications received from over 130 countries and territories. 15 November marks the deadline for Wave 1 applicants who have a stronger chance of success. Those who miss this deadline may still apply by the final deadline of 31 December 2021.
“It is mind blowing to imagine that all over the world young people are engaged in designing and implementing projects related to the similar challenges in different communities. Being the manager for #UPGSustainability Leadership Programme has completely changed my perspective on the global impact generated by many small local actions. The most amazing thing in this program is that it knows no geographical boundaries, and with the training the participants become part of a really global community.” Rodrigo Nunes, Program Manager and #UPGSustainability Leader.
