UpRising Programmes: Environmental Leadership open for applications

19th September 2017

The Environmental Leadership Programme gives young adults aged 19-25 the chance to learn directly from cross-sector, expert sustainability leaders as well as plan their own environmental project to make the world a better, brighter place to live in.

Participants are also matched with a personal coach and professional mentor; recent mentors have included senior leaders from the BBC, Manchester Climate Change Agency, Incredible Edible, Siemens, National Trust, Astrazeneca, and more.

UpRising’s most recent impact report (DEMOS) found that the programme significantly improved leadership, networking and advocacy skills; 68% of participants gained employment and one-in-five alumni set up a social enterprise or business.
