Applications call for UPG Sustainability Leadership Program 2021. UPG Sustainability Leadership mobilizes people and organizations to support positive citizen leadership on sustainability. The program brings together people who are committed to impacting by taking positive actions.
Every individual and organization can play a positive role.

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. Learn more on this site and in the 2019 UPGSL Report. By 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. If this could be you or someone that you know, then take action and apply now or share this link. UPG Sustainability Leadership is FREE for young people thanks to the wonderful support of Partners who believe in positive citizen leadership on sustainability.

Taking Action

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.

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. This initiative is currently comprised of several activities that appear below and which are described further below. Please explore and join any part of the initiative that you can contribute to.


  • The program will cover the costs of the participants. Costs like Training materials, accommodation, subsistence, local transportation, international flights (a round trip flight from participant’s hometown to the US)
  • All 500 participants will have the opportunity to attend online training. In addition to that, participants will also receive certifications as UPG Sustainability Leaders after completion of the course.


In order to be eligible for the program, candidates must be

  • 18 to 35 years of age.
  • Self-motivated, capable of overcoming major challenges, and able to think outside the box.
