The UPG Sustainability Leadership Program, 2022 presents an exciting opportunity for those individuals who are keen on making their mark in their fields. Additionally, this program offers an opportunity for organizations to participate in making a positive impact on communities. The United People Global (UPG) Leadership program is the world’s largest and most comprehensive sustainability leadership program for young adults. The UPG fully-funded program builds a network of world-class speakers, trainers, and leaders that participants will benefit from for a lifetime.
UPG Sustainability Leadership is a movement that mobilises individuals and organisations to support 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 a movement that embodies the notion that everyone can do something to make the world more sustainable.
UPG believes that sustainability includes BOTH the usual “green” issues such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, protecting the oceans AND 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.
The flagship activity is the #UPGSustainability Leadership training program for 500+ young adults from across the globe every year. There are also activities for schools and institutions as well as for companies.
